Urban Design Proposal for Favela Santa Marta 
Elena Vazquez, Hannah Thomas
The proposed strategy of intervention for the Favela Santa Marta is to articulate existing public spaces and generate new ones, connected by Urban and Green Corridors. Urban corridors and green corridors are defined by locating existing commerce and public amenities, with the goal of articulating existing nodes of public life. Also, the corridors are defined by the existing access points of the community, and take into consideration the high risk area subject to landslides, promoting the growth of the community along the corridors.
