Luz nas vielas

2012
São Paulo, Brasil

“Luz nas vielas” was developed in Vila Brasilândia, a favela located in the Northeast of São Paulo, where we had the chance to spend a couple of weeks hosted by the wonderful Gonçalves family. This way, we got access to get to know the community,

We defined the framework in the narrow and winding alleyways which connect the higher and lower urban areas, known as “vielas.”

The project aims to respond to this particular spatial complexity. We flattened the perspective, so from a certain spot (anamorphosis), the words «BELEZA», «FIRMEZA», «AMOR», «DOÇURA» and «ORGULHO» can be read. All the words were surrounded by a flat color, equally covering all the construction materials, democratizing the space.

These were for us, the portrait of the favela.
