Urban Intersections: São Paolo documents the collaboration of Edward P.
Bass Fellow Katherine Farley, senior managing director of the
international real estate developer Tishman-Speyer, and Yale adjunct
professor Deborah Berke, assisted by Noah Biklen, at the Yale School of
Architecture. The book features ways to examine the process of urban
design and development in São Paolo, Brazil, a rapidly growing global
mega-city, with all its attendant vitality and contradictions. The work
engages both the development issues of schedule, phasing, risk,
sustainability, value, and density along with the architectural issues
of scale, formal clarity, envelope articulation, use of color and
texture, and the relationship of building to landscape. An essay by
Vanessa Grossman analyzes and critiques development in Sao Pãolo.
