It aims the architecture democratization by getting togheter architects, builders, students and community to promote the knowledge exchanging, an itinerant school of architecture, with appropriate technologies, collaborating with a culture change.
The IDE Association, a NGO located in Botucatu, is where the Mobile Site has made its first stop.
At first, the institution has caught our attention through its social media and website. There 90 students are assisted, their families, local community, people from the lower middle class, in many cases, in a social vulnerability, besides 10 employees and 19 volunteers.
Our first visit was to know if the publications matched with the reality, its history and surroundings, also to meet people, work done and physical structure.
They are aligned with environmental education, consistently ecology approaching, art, physical education, languages classes, assistance to families, including psychological support. The space needs to be expanded.
Two very important social housing programs (Metropolitan Housing Company of São Paulo), are nearby, where most of the assisted reside - CDHU (Housing and Urban program Company of the State of São Paulo) and Cohab V (Metropolitan Company of São Paulo).
About its history, as located close to these popular housing, the city hall had destined the site to constitute a community center. Due to bad management, it was abandoned and occupied by drug dealers, becaming dangerous.
IDE has started a partnership with the city hall and today carries out a great social work. As architecture services are absent there, we are bringing "Circo-lô" to be constructed collectively in a serious and engaged institution, so that participatory processes could be consolidated.
