Item description for 100% Favela by Daniela Fabricius...

In Rio de Janeiro over 1 million people live in so-called favelas. Often described as informal , favelas and other unregulated urban conditions have in many cities become the rule, rather than the exception. Informal urbanism is a paradigm that is fast becoming the defining characteristic of 21st century urban life. It organizes not just housing, but also infrastructures, geographies, economies, and politics. But what exactly makes a city informal? How do favelas and informality propose a new model for understanding the contemporary city?100% Favela brings together, for the first time in translation, Brazil's leading architects, urbanists, photographers, and economists to discuss, map, and interpret the informal city in its myriad forms. This is an exploration of the international scope of informality and how it will impact the work of urbanists and architects in the future. Contributors include Nelson Brissac, Paola Berenstein-Jacques, Hernando de Soto, Keith Hart, Alba Zaluar, Hermano Vianna, Licia Valladares, Armin Linke, Andre Cypriano, and Nelson Kon.
