Research Projects

The city of Brasília is our main research site — after all. this is where we are located. Secondly, as a planned city, Brasília allows, in an exemplary manner, to study the reciprocal relationship between person and environment: up towhat point and how are the residents of Brasília formed by this singular and planned environment? How do they try to dominate this environment and adapt it to their notions of what a city should be like?
