Description


Brasilia was born with the car central to its conception, and the result is a City of the Future that is decidedly anti-urban. Twenty kilometers from the north edge of Brasilia is Sobradinho, also planned by Costa, but as a settlement rather than a city. Between Brasilia and Sobradinho lies a 16 million square-meter estate known as "Fazenda Paranoazinho."
The book examines the premise of collective city-making on this large empty site between Brasilia and its unplanned satellite suburbs in a studio led by Brazilian developers Rafael and Ricardo Birmann and Sunil Bald assistant professor at Yale School of Architecture. It includes essays and interviews of the Birmanns, Bald and David Sim of Gehl Architects as well as a photo essay by Stefan Ruiz.
