Arquitetura na periferia / Empowering through Architecture

The ARCHITECTURE IN THE PERIPHERY project works with women, living in the peripheries, whose dwellings fall under the Brazilian Housing Deficit, under the criteria of "Inadequacy of Households". The project proposal is to contribute to the inclusion of these women in the decision making, production and improvement of their homes in a collaborative and self-managed way through their active participation in the design, planning and construction processes, expanding their capacity for analysis, discussion and prospecting, increasing their self-esteem. ANP has directly benefited more than 150 people. It is currently led by a team of women.
