The first results of last week’s New Town Lab in Curitiba, Brazil are online! An urban strategy was developed for Caximba, an informal settlement in the southern part of the Tatuquara area. It is partly located in the flood zone of two crossing rivers and a protected national park. The “Nova Caximba” strategy focusses on the city’s green borders, and is based on flood
