New housing for Papaquara – Master’s project finished

2012.05.06 In january 2012, the project of developing housing for the community of Papaquara in Florianópolis in Brazil was completed. The project started with extensive research into what the favela typology consists of and how it develops over time. The project proposal puts emphasis on the temporal conditions of planning, proposes strategies for infrastructure handling, and uses a system of construction that facilitates incremental add-ons over time. The project was exhibited during the final seminar days at the KTH, 23-27 january 2012.
