IO_dencies Sao Paulo Urbanism in exploding mega cities with high social inequalities like Sao Paulo means that city space is delimited and planned only for about one third of the inhabitants, the rest of the people stays outside the walls of the capitalized space. Urbanism means the building of walls that protect the rich city from the 70% of poor, illegal settlements. In our studies we found clear needs for relevant forms of agency which are able to deal with the complex processes of urban exclusions. These forms of agency don't have to deal so much with the re-articulation of territory, but they have to invent and produce existential interfaces which enable in a more and more disappearing public environment in order to avoid political, economical and cultural isolation. Some examples of material in the Sao Paulo cartographies: the mythical role of technologies for immigrants of the north of Brazil , interviews with people of favelas on self organized job markets and parter-economies, the regulation of the real estate market by law, historic artistic views on the city, etc.
