The Rio de Janeiro research team for the Making of Movement ran a seminar at the Brazilian Institute of Architects on August 17 and 18.
The programme included a lecture by Adriana Caula on “visions of the city and the future”, and a round table on the topic of the “Metropolitan City and Mobility” with Romulo Orrico, Joaquim Redig, Fabiana Izaga.
To learn more, find out about the ideas of the architect-planner Luiz Carlos Toledo who has developed travel solutions for inhabitants of the Rocinha favela based on their day-to-day, unofficial mobility strategies. By contrast with other favela projects, these solutions are cheap and make sense to people living there. http://cidadeinteira.blogspot.com/
