04.16.2015, 18:30 Urban projects in favela
This Thursday we will talk about favelas - a unique urban phenomenon which occurred during the evolution of Latin American cities - and ways of their modern development.
Sergiy Kovalyov - our lecturer - who worked in the architectural company 'Atelier Metropolitano' specializing in urban projects in favelas, will acquaint us with the term 'favela', illuminate for us their pros and cons.
"Exploration, designing, discussing with the customer and realization of projects is very complicated and consuming process and way too often - extremely dangerous. This projects have more risks than an ordinary one in a more prosperous areas and they differ completely from European ones" - in that way Sergiy characterizes an architect's position in designing in favelas. He will tell us why, despite all difficulties and problems, architects take such risks, what kind of unique experience he gained, while working on that project and how this experience can be used in many other parts of the world.
This and more will be discussed with Sergiy as early as this Thursday!
