Partnership: Comunidade Vila Beatriz, 2015 – São Paulo (SP)
Address the more than 3 year demand of a region of São Paulo: designing a crosswalk between a park and a square, a space that used to have a lot of accidents and uncomfortable pedestrians.
With the direct participation of 30 people from the region and and indirect impact on thousands of people that are used to crossing that street:
_ 1 crosswalk between the park and the square was designed;
_ an art intervention with a lot of spontaneous media honoring the existing space was held;
_ the municipality intervened by erasing our crosswalk and designing a new one, which actually legitimized pedestrian priority of that space.
