Summer Workshop (register for Fall 2017)

The workshop will explore the complexities of building affordable housing in a multi-use neighborhood within a dense urban setting. Students will design within the constraints of the local conditions, reflecting the current political and socio-economic frameworks that are in place. The workshop will address both the urban and the architectural scales. (more details coming soon)

MIT students will work side-by-side with an equal number of students from the Architecture and Urbanism School of the Federal University of Sao Paulo.
