London event showcases Brazilian education model of the 1980s


The Embassy of Brazil in London will host an unprecedented meeting about the history of the CIEPs (Integrated Centres of Public Education) of the 1980s.

Brainchild of the combined intellects of the likes of Oscar Niemeyer, Darcy Ribeiro and Leonel Brizola, the audacious project implanted in Rio de Janeiro in 1982 became an icon of architecture, inclusion and public education.

The event will provide the public with the chance to find out more about the subject, thanks to a recently released book, called “Onde você encontra pessoas: as Escolas Radicais de Oscar Niemeyer, Darcy Ribeiro e Leonel Brizola” (Wherever you find people: The Radical Schools of Oscar Niemeyer, Darcy Ribeiro and Leonel Brizola), published by the English organisation Aberrant Architecture, edited by David Chambers and Kevin Haley.

Based on extensive interviews with those involved at the time of the project, the work brings previously unseen conversations, texts, sketches and photographs together in one document which, by illuminating the past, provides valuable lessons for the future, serving as inspiration for Brazilians, English people and people from all over the world.


What: Meeting about the book “Onde você encontra pessoas”, by Aberrant Architecture

When: Thursday, 1 December, 7pm-9pm

Where: Embassy of Brazil in London, 14-16 Cockspur Street, London SW1Y 5BL
