urbz Brasil on its inception, approach, methodology in São Paulo
It is commonplace in Brazil that ‘favelas’ are a pervasive part of the urban landscape. Recently however, alternative, bottom-up models have emerged that slowly change this scenario.
In collaboration with local pedreiro Ataide, the urbz team helps build a house in Paraisoplis right from digging the foundations.
Architecture academics makes it difficult for the student to understand the practicality of the profession. This hands-on approach was taken by urbz and the team so that the students could understand the depth of it.
