Crossing Canindé: plural floodplains (CAU/SP)

Meeting point: Conselho de Arquitetura e Urbanismo de São Paulo (CAU/SP)
Rua Quinze de Novembro, 194, Centro Histórico de São Paulo - São Paulo – SP, 01013-000.

Canindé, a neighborhood located on the floodplain of the Tietê and Tamanduateí Rivers, is strongly related to environmental and deterritorialization issues. It was the site of the now extinct Canindé slum, inhabited mainly by black people or migrants from the Northeast region of the country and whose daily life was reported by Carolina Maria de Jesus. The neighborhood also received migrants from other countries who imprinted their physical and symbolic marks on it. The crossing proposes a walk from the city center towards Canindé and will propose a critical look at the transformation of the space, the waterways, the urban voids and the rich social dynamics present there.



Ceda el Paso is a studio dedicated to cultural productions, workshops, independent publications and experimentation with walking, the urban and its citizens and the infinite possible readings and dynamics that are / make everyday life. The studio is Jéssica Andrade, urban anthropology researcher and designer, and Ricardo Silva, architect, university professor and photographer.
