São Paulo

I visited São Paulo two weeks ago with Muntadas and MIT VAP class 4367. The purpose of the trip was to use the city of São Paulo as a case study to review contemporary notions of public space and the role of public art with a group of artists, urbanists and anthropologists living in São Paulo.

It has been of extreme emotional importance for me to have a taste of Latin America before entering the last few weeks of thesis crunching, experiencing life in a city that feels a lot like Mexico City, my home.

The picture shows a view of São Paulo from the top terrace of the edificio Italia. The Copan buliding by Oscar Niemeyer, the largest apartment building in the world, is partially featured in the right side of the picture. Um, the other right side I mean.
