Project Morrinho: Southbank Centre Favela

Project Morrinho is an ever-growing social project that takes the form of a miniature city built by young people in Rio de Janeiro from brick, paint and other found materials inspired by the landscape, architecture and everyday life of the favelas that span the city.

This new riverside structure is built in collaboration with young people in London, creating a landscape that fuses places and stories – real and imagined – from the tower blocks of Lambeth to the backstreets of Rio de Janeiro.

Come and celebrate the completion of Southbank Centre's model favela with our party on Thursday 22 July.

Part of Festival Brazil sponsored by HSBC
