More Autogestão Housing
Hear from residents at other projects built via self-management. While detailed information about these projects is not readily available at the moment, anecdotes from residents highlight how autogestão housing has empowered their lives.
Paulo Freire is a striking example of the success of autogestão. The open nature of the design facilitates resident interaction and connection - while conversing with neighbors on shared balcony space, parents can easily spot children playing in common areas below. Residents were deeply involved in the design of Paulo Freire, and continue to shape the space to fit their needs. For example, the project originally did not include parking in the original design, as the city was far less car dependent when construction first broke ground. However, as the years passed, it became clear that onsite parking was necessary. Thus, residents engaged in democratic decision-making to incorporate parking into the project.
