dionisio gonzález/ an assembled city/ 2006

*slaughtering: dionisio gonzález deftly documents the architectural disarrangement of shanty towns in sao paolo, brazil by piecing together photos of these towns with photos of modern, geometric architecture that blend the clean and modern with the grungy and scattered.after an exhaustive and exacting study of these massive unregulated settlements, the artist proposes a radical restructuring of the constructability, improving precarious conditions of habitability. unlike most architects and urban planners who want to impose an urban logical order through their work, dionisio gonzález tried to adjust constructive alternatives to existing structures according to the needs of the residents.
