Say bye bye to these shacks. They are bound to be all erased from the earth´s surface.

Even now though they are still terribly expensive, and few people in Angola can afford them, especially the working class. And in Angola 40% of the population live on less than $1.25 per day.

Despite this they are nice, and they have been done professionally, so that's a plus, but for noe they are Africa's biggest ghost town
Unfortunately that's the true, despite being an excellent project for a country and a city that really needs it, for now is only a ghost town.

It's a huge project (still ongoing) that rehabilitated one of the most decayed zones of Lisbon, transforming it into a new mixed neighborhood, ranging from social housing to apartments for the upper classes.

It's kinda of sad but it looks like the future, is a commie block future, for most of the world. I like modern architecture, in small doses, because all modern architecture is, cubes, sometimes with a few triangles, and it is sad to see the whole world become so monochrome. Without the application of native architecture and art, all cities become the same city.

I still think these commieblocks (no way) are ok. If you fear blocks of cubes and cubes...

Bairro Carioca

História



Pela segunda vez, um terreno espalhado em 155 mil m², numa área privilegiada da Zona Norte do Rio, é palco de um momento importante de transformação da cidade. O espaço, que já pertenceu ao Jockey Club Brasileiro e à Light, foi comprado pela Prefeitura do Rio para abrigar o Bairro Carioca, construído para acolher famílias de áreas de risco.

A propriedade não utilizada pelo Jockey foi adquirida pela Light ainda nos anos 1920, quando a empresa, que tinha a concessão dos serviços públicos no Rio de Janeiro, sentiu a necessidade de centralizar toda sua manutenção e construção de equipamentos, em função da escassez de material importado provocada pela Primeira Guerra Mundial.

– A Cidade Light, como era chamada, foi inaugurada aqui nesse mesmo local em 1930. De 1920 a 1945, a população do Rio multiplicou por dois, saindo de um milhão para dois milhões de habitantes. Como a Light era a empresa que tinha a concessão dos principais serviços públicos – de transporte, de gás encanado, de telefonia e eletricidade –, ela resolveu concentrar em um único lugar toda a fabricação e conservação do material necessário para a manutenção desses serviços – explica Paulo Bicalho, responsável pelo Instituto Light e pelo centro cultural da empresa.

Agora, aquela área do bairro de Triagem, onde existiam enormes galpões de transformadores e oficinas de bondes, será ocupada por 170 prédios de cinco pavimentos, com um total de 3.400 novas unidades habitacionais. A previsão da Prefeitura é que o novo bairro abrigue aproximadamente 10 mil pessoas.

Pelo menos cinco construções antigas serão mantidas e transformadas em equipamentos sociais. O prédio principal, que ganhou o nome Edifício James McKim Bell em homenagem a um dos primeiros funcionários da empresa no Brasil, abrigava toda a parte administrativa, financeira e controladoria da oficina.

Com o Bairro Carioca concluído, a construção será ocupada por um centro cívico de trabalho e renda, onde serão realizados cursos e haverá encaminhamento para emprego. O que remete ao cotidiano da movimentação de funcionários na antiga fábrica.

– Naquela época havia uma defasagem muito grande de mão de obra especializada, e esse complexo chegou a ter 2 mil trabalhadores fazendo apenas a construção e manutenção de equipamentos – lembra Bicalho.

De acordo com o projeto da Secretaria de Habitação, além do centro cívico, a estrutura comunitária contará com uma escola, um Espaço de Desenvolvimento Infantil (EDI), um mercado e um ginásio poliesportivo. O Bairro Carioca também terá uma Clínica da Família.

O Projeto



Apartamento


Sala, dois quartos, acabamento, 60 metros quadrados. Já está pronto o apartamento-modelo do megaempreendimento em Triagem, Zona Norte do Rio.

That's true, but let's not forget that is social housing, not all residents have money to buy dryer machines so they take advantage of the sun

No, it's ok to use the sun. Actually, really ok. And we in Brazil do the same, but those apartments don't have a internal space for that like this


?
It's not a miss universe, but I think all apartments here have one linked with the kitchen, mine included.

Or, when I used to live in a condo with balcony, we had one of these


In fact, we still use it today, but indoors.


It reminds me I got to put my towel to try.

Building social housing often equals to creating slums.

Depends on how it's done. If you just tear down the slums and put them in apartment blocks, then in a few years everything will be backt to normal, just in a tower block.

In order to make it work, you need to make sure everyone is employed and doing something, and that there are adequate facilities around, and most importantly, the areas are looked after. Many times have these areas been built and then left without maintainance and service provision. If it's all done well then they can actually be rather plesant places to live.

That's what happened with Cidade de Deus (city of god).
But the portuguese ones seems to have A LOT more facilities and transportation, differently of CDD when they made it.

Turkish capital of Ankara's project of urban renewal in the center:

Renewing the urban tissue of slums with historic Anatolian houses, thus transforming the most ugly part of the city into a local and touristic attraction. The price of land here has risen 12-15 fold in less than 2 years:
