A symposium co-organized by the Housing and Urbanism programme of the AA Graduate School and the Centre for Brazilian Studies of the University of Oxford. As one of the richest, most internationally integrated, socially divided and physically fragmented metropolitan centres of the developing world, São Paulo provides the starting and focus point for a comparative debate on the significance and impact of globalization. As an extreme case of integration and exclusion, it provides an important insight into the challenges and possibilities for architects and planners.
