Since March 2011, Studio-X Rio occupies a three-storey building at Praça Tiradentes, a square in Rio de Janeiro’s downtown area. The space brings together professionals, academics, decision makers, students, and the general public to confront our most pressing urban challenges. It is particularly interested in how cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary, and cross-continental exchanges can affect and inform each other when facing the ongoing urban transformations of the city, the country and Latin America.
The Studio-X Rio Research Guide is a point of departure for the exploration of Rio through multiple media, narratives and contemporary debates.
