The Blue Cities


Across the world, cities have paved over and buried urban rivers and streams in an effort to free up land for development and control water. São Paulo, Brazil's largest city, has covered more than 300 of its rivers, exacerbating the city's ongoing issues with access to safe water. Carolina Ferrés, a designer and social entreprenuer, is working to reconnect people with São Paulo's buried rivers through her project, Blue City, which helps people relocate some of these rivers while walking through the city. She hopes to help Brazilians rethink their connections to urban waterways through her work.


Carolina is part of Red Bull Amaphiko, read more about her project here.
