      IURD LECTURE

      Carlos Leite: Smart Informal Territories: Heliopolis Slum

      Wednesday, January 23, 2013 | 5:00 pm | 214B Wurster Hall, UC Berkeley

      Professor Carlos Leite (Mackenzie University, Sao Paulo) will discuss
      two of his recent research projects, “Indicators of Sustainability on
      Urban Development” and "Smart Informal Territories Lab in Heliopolis
      Slum," which looks at the challenge of the Sustainable Megacity
      through Sao Paulo’s experience as a city of 20 million people, with
      expansion that ranges from formal urban development to the informal
      context of huge slums. This work signalizes parameters for a city that
      is reinventing itself through eco-urbanism after the "expanding and
      exhausting" model of the 21st century, when the city grew by 27,000%
      in population and 40,000% in urban territory in a country, Brazil,
      that has the 6th world highest GNP today.
