Manaus/Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


Instructor: McLain Clutter
Location: Manaus and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

"Rubbermade" is a programmatic structure to develop theses for Detroit by critically translating tactics for architectural agency in the post-industrial city of Manus, Brazil. Using Manaus as a generator, we will analyze the city for architectures that evince precise dispositions towards the post-industrial conditions, exporting them for projects on the Motor City. In doing so, Manaus and Detroit, whose post-industrial character are infamous within their respective countries, will act as critical mirrors to one-another-illuminating through estrangement otherwise invisible potentials for urban vitality.
