(English)

The exhibition examines the architecture of state housing, starting with the question “what makes good public housing?” Beginning with the example of Pedregulho, the emblematic housing complex created by Carmem Portinho and Affonso Eduardo Reidy in the 1940s, the exhibition presents three other contemporary cases - Jardim Edite, Parque Santo Amaro V and Residencial Colônia Juliano Moreira - to comprise a panel on the question. It also features contributions from architects, residents and academics who offer their perspectives on the planning and experience of these spaces.
