Location: MCB – Museu da Casa Brasileira, São Paulo

The exhibition ‘São Paulo: da cidade informal aos novos bairros’ has ended.

The exhibition ‘São Paulo: da cidade informal aos novos bairros’ shows the results of IABR Atelier São Paulo. This atelier developed a Map of Opportunities for both the entire city and the territory of study, Cabuçu de Cima. The map indicates existing potentialities and how these may trigger a process of negotiations of possible forms of development and use of this territory.

The exhibition will feature material produced and generated by the Atelier São Paulo, including the results of its research, consultancies, social work, designs, Urban Plan, photos, films and testimonials. A large topographic model of the region shows the people’s desires and projects, as well as the Urban Plan proposed for the region. Filling the room will be the voices of the residents of Cabuçu and of the different stakeholders in this process of transformation.


Atelier São Paulo is set up by the IABR and Secretaria Municipal de Habitação (SEHAB), and run by IABR’s local curator in São Paulo, Fernando de Mello Franco of MMBB Arquitetos.

Making City / Fazendo Cidade is a collaboration of the IABR and SEHAB, Municipality of São Paulo. The exhibition is curated by Marisa Barda and set up by SEHAB and Museu da Casa Brasileira.
