The volume "Habitar a comunidade / Abitare la comunità" has been created within the context of an attempt to identify new strategies of intervention in the "informal city" that do not so much try to impose external models as to define some simple operational principles that may be implemented both by individuals and by administrations through shared and participative projects. The underlying concept is that the communities can only be upgraded through a direct involvement of its own members.
The work centres on the Babilonia and Chapéu Mangueira favelas in the Leme district in Rio de Janeiro. Each chapter is identified by a key word linked to a primary action of urban living: enter, move, inhabit, relate and sustainable living. Within them, every operational suggestion is conceived as a practical model that may be implemented autonomously by each inhabitant of the Community.
