Architecture & Art

Posts from the ‘Year Four’ category

The project is about exploring the scripts governing space and their power structures and how people behave within certain places. It aims to reverse power structures by using architectural intervention as a tool to catalyse change. The proposal was tested in Rio de Janeiro by looking at the condition on the boundary of favela. It’s about subverting the scripts that divides the favela from the formal city in Rio de Janeiro. Architect appears to be building for the government, but surreptitiously is really creating opportunities for favela inhabitants by hijacking the existing infrastructural system. Rather than creating a perfect utopian world to solve the problem, it’s more about how to disrupt rules and provide opportunities by understanding the scripts of the existing conditions of favela and the surrounding city.
