UIA RIO 2021

The 27th World Congress of Architects will be held in the summer of 2021 in Rio de Janeiro. As an accompanying event, an INTERNATIONAL IDEAS COMPETITION is announced for Architecture students for the MARÉ-CIDADE QUARTER OF RIO DE JANEIRO that is organized by the Institute of Architects of Brazil (IAB – Instituto de Arquitetos do Brasil) and the International Union of Architects and is supported by UN-Habitat.

„The competition site is located between an important and busy expressway (Avenida Brasil) and a cluster of favelas (Complexo da Maré). This territory is currently occupied by warehouses and industrial buildings, most of which are abandoned or in disuse. The competition invites students to propose innovative urban solutions for the area, considering the local population, and their connection with the city.” With the help of international tutors, we were working on this design challenge and have in groupwork discussed and given answers to questions of informality in urban design, social inclusiveness, safety, resilience, and sustainability.
