Arquitetura na Periferia / Living together

"Architecture of Periphery" is an initiative that promotes women's emancipation for the improvement of their precarious houses. The process involves planning the works and a small interest-free loan to get them started. The methodology based on cooperation and information sharing - the participants learn to draw, measure, design, plan and execute some construction services - ends up promoting not only the improvement of the physical space of the house, but also an increase in the self-esteem and self-confidence. "If I change the space I'm in, I'm changing too. I've made some minor improvements on myself." Luciana da Cruz, 2013/14 participan
