Thanks everybody for voting for my Cornell thesis project. It is ranked #3 in the top 25 arch. projects for Jan. If you still haven't seen it, the voting is open for 20 more days!
I am excited about the jury's decision - the Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid. She is selecting the architecture student projects to be published in Anno Books 2011:12.
The ranking or the publishing is not the final goal for this project. What matters is this research and proposed scenario to be implemented in reality and to make a difference for the people living in Rio's favalas.
