SLUM Lab 1: Paraisópolis
The inaugural issue of SLUM Lab explores the urban cultural context of Latin America as a means to reimagine the nature of cities in the Global South and the potential of design as a tool to support sustainable development outcomes in informal settlements. Produced as a free newspaper to coincide with and document the Spring 2008 Columbia University GSAPP design studio that took place in São Paulo, Brazil, the publication includes contributions from Christian Werthmann, Elito Arquitectos, Robert Neuwirth, Reinhold Martin, and the São Paulo State Housing Secretariat (SEHAB), as well as a selection of student work.
