favela painting project
Favela Painting Project
  • Favela’s around Rio de Janeiro are notorious for high crime rates
  • 2007, JeroenKoolhaas and DreUrhahncame up with idea for Favela Painting Project
  • This socially entrepreneurial project meant to beautify neighborhood, bring media attention to need for improvements
  • 2010, employ local Santa Marta favela youth to paint murals over 75,000 sq. ft. of public square
creativity in the favela
Creativity in the Favela
  • They are using art, and not increased police or military forces to combat crime and corruption
  • Many studies have shown that the “broken window” theory is true, that the more dirty and run-down a city looks, the more likely people are to not take care of it, commit more crimes
  • Hired local youth, who will take pride in their work, and not let it get destroyed
  • Drew people to see from miles around, giving the community a sense of togetherness and importance
  • Taught them proper safety and painting methods, can be used for future self-sustainability
micro home solutions
micro Home Solutions
  • In the Indian Government’s slum-resettlement colony of Mangolpuri, people moved away from the city are alloted 250 sq. ft. plots
  • In order to make any kind of sustainable income, people were building extra floors on top to sublet, these were often shaky and dangerous
  • Great demand for housing, increasing density of population
  • In 2010, Design Home Solutions created to “improve self-construction practices and accommodate rental models”
  • They offer small affordable home-improvement loans, and architects who design and monitor construction, to decrease danger
creative aspects of micro home solutions
Creative Aspects of micro Home Solutions
  • With a relatively small amount of outside help, they are helping many people help themselves
  • Providing safe and affordable housing for the many homeless
  • While architects design and monitor construction, individuals build their improvements themselves, increasing pride in their homes, etc.
  • Boosting the economy significantly, giving more income to those who have plots of land, to spend in their local markets
interview impressions
Interview Impressions
  • People felt they had no access to affordable housing, couldn’t get jobs
  • Wanted to see something done with abandoned buildings, bring new business in, get rid of crime which tends to occur in these locales
  • Felt very little pride in the appearance of their community, other than the mural near Samaritan, underneath which many homeless people congregate
re using unused buildings project rub
Re-using Unused Buildings Project (RUB)
  • Buy up unused, dilapidated buildings in the area
  • Offer people in the area opportunity to get in on the restoration, and transformation of these buildings into low-income apartment complexes
  • Similar to the Design Home Solutions Project, have architects to watch over building, but still produce pride in the people about their work
  • Hire local people, especially people who will be living in the building, to paint and decorate the outside
  • Put in a small playground/park, to create a central area for the community, sense of community
