Informality as Strategy by Bart Aptroot (17 Apr 2009)

  1. 1. Bart Aptroot Informality as Strategy Presentation 7 17-04-09 14:00-18:00 FAU-USP Lecture Hall IN.SP PROJECT PRESENTATIONS 2009
  2. 2. Sao
Paulo
is
a
heterogenous
monster
 3
ci3es:
future,
present,
past
 Future
Sao
Paulo
ended
in
the
70’s
 Informal
Sao
Paulo
is
always
in
the
present
 Formal
Sao
Paulo
is
building
the
past

  3. 3. Informality
tends
to
cluster
 Example:
“park
&
light”,
a
cluster
of
interior
light
stores
that
double
as
parking
garages

  4. 4. Condi3ons
for
clustering
 Flexibility
of
building
typology
 Flexibility
of
zoning
plan
 History
 (absence
of)
infrastructure

  5. 5. Two
strategic
urban
design
approaches
(for
architects)
 • Use
micro
interven3ons
to
create
a
semi
public
inner
world
with
the
poten3al
to
interact
with


 the
neighbours.
 • Ini3ate
plans
with
land
owners.

Focus
on
high
investment
rather
than
high
profit
for
easy
 municipal
approval.
Land
owner
will
sell
land
+
plan
+
approval
(low
risk
=
high
price)
to
a
 developer
in
a
bidding
procedure.

  6. 6. Informal
clustering
(aTer
a
succesful
first
aUempt)
 • Neighbouring
plots
not
only
link
to
the
newly

created
semi
public
inner
world.
They’ll
start
 crea3ng
their
own
inner
fabric.
Linking
these
areas
increases
success.
 • ATer
one
larger
land
owner
has
proven
the
success
of
selling
land
with
pland
and
approval
 others
will
see
opportuni3es
for
their
proper3es
and
ini3ate
similar
strategies.
