The process of city-making belongs to citizens today more than yesterday: communities take ownership of their environment and by means of low resources, awareness and creativity answer their needs. Handmade Urbanism focuses on five emerging cities -Mumbai, Cape Town, Mexico City, Istanbul and São Paulo - and describes the potential of urban transformation embedded in small-scale initiatives.

The neighbourhood of Colonia Las Américas in Querétaro (Mexico) looks like a kaleidoscope now, thanks to multicolored paints, traditional fabric for inspiration and industrious inhabitants of all ages. The “art director” is the Boamistura collective, that promotes community-based artwork to foster the identity of a community. Proyecto Las Américas is entering the second phase: stay tuned.

Who says that spray cans are not for elderly people? The project LATA 65 will threaten your certainties with a wink. Because street art is not a matter of age but a form of culture and participation within the life of cities. Held in Lisbon (Portugal), the workshop engaged a group of “beginners” and taught the basics and techniques of street art.
