2 Jorge Mario Jáuregui is an Architect whos work and life is dedicated to a social task of utmost significance and priority: upgrading and humanizing life conditions in Brazilian favelas (slums) through urbanistic and architectural interventions of sustainable quality. Both his activities and his writings show that and how architects can do more than to design brilliant objects. Internationally accepted through the Harvard prize Jáuregui demonstrates that architects can broaden the professional horizon, and that there is always a way to seize the chance to intervene in given urban and social situations – combining social commitment, creative methods including forms of cooperation between planners and clients, and spatial solutions. Jorge Mario Jáuregui is not only a practicing architect designing urban projects but likewise a genuine theoretist finding clarifying terms that are adequate to his challenging urbanistic interventions. As a creative thinker Jáuregui has for example developed the term »partido urbanistico«, a kind of key or structural coherent dispositive through which he formulates every particular project, combining urbanistic, social, cultural, economic, and ecological aspects in a unique conceptual formal and spatial configuration. What makes his theoretical and practical methods intriguing, sophisticated as well as coherent is their interdisciplinary co-action in the reading of the existing site. 11/1/20132Streisand Inc.

6 The Favela-Bairro Project: Jorge Mario Jauregui Architects (Graduate School of Design Green Prize) The favelas (slums) of Rio de Janeiro are shantytowns that lack even the most basic infrastructure and services. The Favela-Bairro Project, featuring the work of Jorge Mario Jauregui Architects, seeks to turn these blighted areas into functioning neighborhoods, or bairros. Jauregui's design initiatives include the construction of community centers offering recreational activities and job training, daycare facilities, communal kitchens, and new streets and pedestrian walkways. These projects facilitate movement within the favelas, create links to the city center, address health and environmental concerns, and taken collectively, improve the sociological and economic status of the favelas. architects-graduate-school-design-green-prize 11/1/20136Streisand Inc.
