SMART Infrastructure & Mobility: Exploring Water, Mobility & Infrastructure in São Paulo

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


This booklet presents the outcomes of the 2014 eligible course ‘Smart Infrastructure and Mobility’ (SIM), of the Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment Urbanism MSc. The course builds on the theme of the São Paulo Water Ring, locally known as ‘Hidro-Anel’ – the Metropolitan Waterways Ring of São Paulo project designed by the ‘Metrópole Fluvial’ research group. The complexity of planning and designing for water resiliency in a metropolis of the developing world poses two important questions: (a) How the design of landscape infrastructures could potentially improve the social, economic and ecological conditions of densely occupied areas; and (b)How water planning/governance could best support the transition towards livable and resilient territories.
