The 11th São Paulo Architecture Biennale displayed Ooze's project Água Carioca as part of the exhibition 'Utilidade Pública' (Public Utility). Curated by Marcos Rosa, the biennale ran until end of December 2017. The exhibition was held at Vila Itororó until 22 December and focused on architectures aimed at transforming, adapting and qualifying the urban space to the uses of daily life, along with countless other agents involved in the city's co-production.
As well as exhibiting at the Biennale, Ooze were also invited to develop the project Água Paulista, a project investigating the potential for local, closed-loop water cycles, using rainwater collection, natural wastewater treatment and water recycling, in the city. Three events were held in December 2017 in São Paulo – a community workshop which created a graffiti map exploring closed-loop water cycles in the neighbourhood of Sapé, a decision makers workshop to interrogate implementation and management, and a lecture to provide a forum for public reflection and debate.
Exhibition: Vila Itororó | 4 November to 22 December | open from 9h until 17h
