EXHIBITION | ECOLOGICAL URBANISM 2020
Visitation extended until June 13, 2021
The Museu da Casa Brasileira, an institution of the Secretariat of Culture and Creative Economy of the State of São Paulo, opened in partnership with Harvard University, the exhibition ‘Urbanismo Ecológico 2020‘ which celebrates the launch of the book ‘Ecological Urbanism in Latin America’ which it took place in March and presents a summary of the publication, highlighting proposals from the city of São Paulo, Colombia and Mexico City, among others.
The new exhibition features models and unpublished drawings that explore its content, expanding its reach to diverse audiences, inserting it in a critical and interactive way in the cultural, environmental and political context of Brazilian cities.
The Harvard Graduate School of Architecture’s initiative attempts to highlight imaginative and practical methods for addressing climate change and sustainability in the urban environment, understanding ecology as an ethical and political project that embraces the environment, not just as physical reality, but also under the aspect of social relations and human subjectivity.
In 2014, the first volume of ‘Ecological Urbanism’ was published in Spanish and Portuguese, a compilation of texts arising from this line of research and urban action. The appearance of that volume led to a series of meetings and debates in several countries in Latin America and the set of essays and works are gathered in Ecological Urbanism in Latin America.
This new volume was edited by Mohsen Mostafavi, Gareth Doherty, Marina Correia, Ana María Durán Calisto and Luis Valenzuela. The publication also presents the complex and polyhedral reality of Latin America based on seven thematic axes – anticipating, collaborating, feeling, including, mobilizing, curing, adapting -, dialogue with the original publication, exploring new interpretations.
In addition to the exhibition, there will be a special virtual program on subjects on the theme of Ecological Urbanism and the projects presented in the exhibition, with the participation of Nelson Brissac, Shundi Iwamizu and Marina Correia, among others. The chats will take place with the mission of spreading the contents presented in an interactive and current way, to the public throughout the duration of the exhibition.
The exhibition’s curatorship, architecture and visual communication are by Marina Correia and Fabiana Araújo, architects graduated from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Architecture.
