The Cass Brazil Programme

Exhibition of work by Cass students from Diploma Unit 3 set in São Paulo over the last two years as part of the Brazil Programme.
Date: 21 February 2014

The Cass presents an Exhibition of work by students from Diploma Unit 3 set in São Paulo over the last two years as part of the Brazil Programme. The Exhibition will be accompanied by lectures from Paul Vermeulen (3rd February) and Heidi Svenningsen Kajita (26th February).

The exhibition was previously shown at Escola da Cidade in São Paulo (November 2013). The work looks at ways of designing into the city with the sense of freshness that only careful looking at the existing situation and a strong relationship between strategy and detail can bring.


Paul Vermeulen is a writer, lecturer at TU Delft and a principal of De Smet Vermeulen architecten in Ghent, Belgium. His case study of Edificio Copan in Sao Paulo, a historic building that in spite of its iconic status is poorly documented, is co-authored by Diego Beja Inglez de Souza.
