Forthcoming dates for this school to be announced.
Rio De JaneiroSamba City, Escola de Samba do Grande Rio
Tuesday 26 March – Friday 5 April 2013
Recently, the government of Rio de Janeiro implemented a policy of urban redevelopment that recognises the importance of providing space for the local creative economy of the Samba Schools. Using this strategy as our impetus the Rio de Janeiro Visiting School will work directly with this initiative and aim to broaden its scope and accessibility in an attempt to foster a diverse public space. The projects will include the design of both permanent structures and temporary interactive installations transforming the existing closed production area of Samba City into an open space linked to proposed leisure itineraries along the waterfront. Structures will be designed with computational design methods and built with digital fabrication techniques with the assistance of local artisans combining new materials and processes with reappropriated Carnival paraphernalia.
The deadlines for application is 19 March 2013.
