Faculdade de Arquitetura e Urbanismo da Universidade de São Paulo (FAU USP)

The building came about under difficult conditions as the architect was arrested as a Leninist and member of the Communist Party and deported to Uruguay while construction was underway. The object combines a sophisticated load-bearing structure and consciously rough execution by unskilled workers. As such, it documents the poverty of the working class despite Brazil’s economic rise. From the start the building did not provide a comfortable ambient temperature, which Artigas defended as a concept: “it is necessary to suffer in the FAU-USP in order to be brought to a revolutionary understanding of the world.”
