Happy Favelas

I found this & just had to share! As a studier of buildings, urban studies, & other various related fields this sort of thing makes me happy happy!

Haas&Hahn {aka Jeroen Koolhaas & Dre Urhahn}, hailing from The Netherlands, have been a team since 2005. They filmed a hip-hop documentary in the favelas of Rio & São Paolo for MTV, & were so taken with the environment that they decided to bring wild art -with the help of some local youth -to public places to spruce them up...and bring some happiness {what a happy post we are having, eh?}. They entitled this project: "community-driven art interventions"...don't you love it!

Yay for accessible art & yay for community involvement!
