title Shape Grammar and Social Housing: recognizing patterns in favelas’ buildings
source SIGraDi 2018 [Proceedings of the 22nd Conference of the Iberoamerican Society of Digital Graphics - ISSN: 2318-6968] Brazil, São Carlos 7 - 9 November 2018, pp. 170-175
summary Social Housing is worldwide problem, especially in underdeveloped countries. In Brazil, people do solve this issue with self-made houses, in irregular land occupations. As a result, those informal settlements, also known as favelas, proliferate in medium and big cities all over the country, in very poor infrastructure. On the other hand, governmental policies for social housing development are often criticized, because of several reasons, including architectural design, frequently unfit for the families assisted. The present work observes the architecture developed in self-made houses at Favela da Rocinha and presents Shape Grammar as an instrument for analysis of frequent solutions, in order to provide data for adequate architectural design.
