Rio de Janeiro meets London at Southbank.
An idea that began in the slums of Rio de Janeiro in 1997 by a youth who used bricks and recycled materials to build his quarter of the city. A bit like lego I guess.
Project Morrinho has grown to become a social and cultural project aiming to change lives in the favelas. (slums).
This installation was a collaboration between young people in London and those involved in the project in Rio de Janeiro. Buildings in London sit alongside the back streets of Rio.
