Nós Brasil! We Brazil! – The German contribution to the X Architecture Biennial in São Paolo

As part of the German contribution Nós Brasil! We Brazil! for the X Architecture Biennial in São Paulo a four-part newspaper series was produced, which documents the results of the local workshops.

In the three cities of Curitiba, Porto Alegre and Salvador curator Matthias Böttger and artist / architect Luis Berríos-Negrón created a large table in the form of the letter "Y" and discussed with local activists, artists, citizens and architects: Who creates the city? The results and visions from these workshops were exhibited at the X Architecture Biennial in São Paulo and discussed in a fourth local workshop.

The papers include:

1.1. Curitiba (The Future of the Smart City)
1.2. Porto Alegre (The Future of Participatory Budgeting)
1.3. Salvador (The Future of Urban Activism)
1.4. São Paulo (The New Middle Class)

The individual papers can be downloaded here:





Issue 1.1 - 1.3. were presented in São Paulo at the Architecture Biennial whereas issue 1.4. was produced to document the results of the final workshop that took place during the Biennial in São Paulo.

The four newspapers form at the same time the first issues of the Weltstadt newspaper series. For more information on the project „Weltstadt – Who creates the city?“ please click here.
