Camila Franchi

As an architect and urban designer Camila is concerned about the biggest Brazil´s issue that is social inclusion. Under this mindset she has worked in many urban spaces projects including a deep research about how the urban design can positively affect people´s life in poor communities of Rio de Janeiro. Working for the only Architecture company in Brazil focused on playspaces development, she supports the implementation of a new concept of recreational spaces.

Camila is passionate on how to shape sustainable and inclusive urban spaces for children.


How the urban design can influence child social inclusion in Brazil

Inclusive urban planning is the main topic at the moment, developing cities with different experiences in the same shared place. People should see the city 'alive' and open for playspaces, as a meeting point and also a real learning point for children. Although in Brazil, it is a very big challenge due to the current lack of government investment, cultural environment, political and legal.

Nowadays more than 85% of the population in Brazil lives in the city. The urban design logic should be inclusive; however, this is not a major priority. Additionally, the city design logic influences individual habits. If we want better cities, we have to learn about the principles and how it works, how we have to work on them. What does that mean? People have to learn how to live in the urban spaces as they live in their own houses.
