Description 

More than 5,000 years ago, the Guarani people used to wander around the territory in the search of Yvy marã ei, the ‘Land without Affliction’, a place that would be a mirror of the Earth, but without hunger, war, and disease. Yvy marã ei is Brazil’s oldest manifestation of the idea of utopia.
Modern Brazilian architecture was driven by the values of amplifying the public realm, welcoming differences, reducing inequalities, and preparing the territory to offer open platforms to foster full coexistence in all its complexity, without sublimating its contradictions. These values, present in contemporary initiatives, stimulated the imagination of ‘other places’ – utopias – for common life.
