the urbanism of jorge wilheim (sesc)

in sesc consolação                  sao paulo brazil                     action           2019

how to bring the discussion of architecture and urbanism to the non-specialized public? 

this issue was established as central through the educational program of the exhibition “conversations in the square: the urbanism of jorge wilheim”, which took place at sesc consolação between september and december 2019. 

the educational program, coordinated by the zebra5 group , proposed devices that would dialogue with space, architecture, the city and its dynamics for a diverse audience, of different ages, who attended Sesc.

among the devices created, I had direct participation in the conception - the “forum” and the “mysteries in the square”.

the forum sought to bring the essence of the public square as a space for political action. therefore, during the school visits, discussions were proposed where urban conflicts were issues and the groups defended different positions, such as the conflict between occupations for housing / empty private properties, pedestrian street / streets for cars. the discussions took place, highlighting the conflict and later the difficulty of agreeing on a single project - a difficulty that is often present to the architect-urbanist.

the “mysteries in the square” activities were designed for children. at first, the objective was to find in the square, based on an architectural plan, elements that guided their curiosity to discover the author's work, a reinvention of the “treasure hunt”.
