As cities strain under a growing population and demand for resources, Brazil will provide a test case for how politicians, architects and urban planners can work together with local stakeholders to improve living conditions in informal settlements without upsetting their social structures. Against the backdrop of recent and exemplary developments in Brazilian public policy and slum-upgrading practices, Building Brazil! investigates the way forward for the slums of Jardim Colombo, Heliópolis, Cidade Ipava and Rio das Pedras. Practical design solutions are also offered for informal and risk-prone areas.
