Join us for a screening of Within Formal Cities, a new documentary film that takes viewers deep into the urban fabric of five South American cities. Pittsburgh native Brian Gaudio and Abe Drechsler document housing and infrastructure projects in Lima, Santiago, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, and Bogotá. During their travels, they interviewed more than 40 architects, designers, community members, and government agencies to learn about the housing crisis and the innovative ways designers are addressing it.
Brian Gaudio will introduce the film and conduct a Q&A following.
This screening is a program of Building Optimism: Public Space in South America at Carnegie Museum of Art’s The Heinz Architectural Center.
