Systems of free space and the constitution of the contemporary public sphere in Brazil


The objectives of the project are to deepen discussions on open spaces existing in the cities; to validate these spaces as representative of a condition of urban cultural life; to analyze how the urban public authorities act in relation to them; to construct, based on the link between open spaces and public life, an interpretative point of reference of Brazilian urban contemporaneity. We will try to make the discussion impact on a national scale by means of the structuring of a research network, the constitution of which will be promoted by the national coordination headquartered in São Paulo. The project enjoys the participation of several laboratories and research groups from public and private institutions at higher education level in every region of the country, whose work in network aims to build a theoretical-conceptual referential model and methodology obtained from the exchange of knowledge, methods and suggestions from the different research activities that make up the project. As a result, it is hoped to be able to identify comparative terms which permit an interpretation of the national reality, from the point of view of the landscape architecture. (AU)
