Micro-town-planning? Faith in the healing (or saving?) power of architecture? These three interventions form part of the "Favela Bairro" project, an initiative to encourage families to settle in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro by offering better living conditions in their neighborhoods. The program proposals mainly relate to recreation and use of leisure time; the world of work and productivity is not the only answer, apparently, to the problems of marginality and urban poverty.
