RECIFE

"The bright yellow awning, which was slung from telegraph poles and buildings using cables, was erected in just four hours with the help of locals and according to the designers, immediately turned the neglected thoroughfare into a vibrant public space." 

The project was initiated and designed in collaboration with Omid Kamvari and Asif Khan both currently graduates from the Architectural Association. The project looks closely at favela or shanty towns and aims to deal with issues of connectivity within the favela and its surrounding context.
