Urban Acupuncture

Jaime Lerner

During his three terms as mayor of Curitiba, Brazil in the 1970s and ‘80s, architect and urbanist Jaime Lerner transformed his city into a global model of the sustainable and livable community. From the pioneering Bus Rapid Transit system to parks designed to catch runoff and reduce flooding, and the creation of pedestrian-only zones, Lerner has been the driving force behind a host of innovative urban projects. In more than forty years of work in cities around the globe, Lerner has found that changes to a community don’t need to be large-scale and expensive to have a transformative impact—in fact, one block, park, or a single person can have an outsized effect on life in the surrounding city.

Quem Cria Nasce Todo Dia

Jaime Lerner

He who creates, is born every day

Jaime Lerner

Available only in Portuguese

Jaime Lerner is a creator. This is his essential trait. From the family shop’sshowcase decorator  to the inventor who reconstructs the urban design of cities around the world, he has always been a creator. He has the soul of an artist, not that of laboratory inventor or of authority in his cabinet.

This book presents a different dimension, rich and fertile in the storytelling of everyday life, that brings us closer to Lerner, his feelings and personal experiences that do not fit in official history, speeches or academic theses.

Jaime is a non-stop citizen of the world. With his head open to the new, to the new. That’s why the title of the volume reflects what it is about. The former governor, current writer and eternal urbanist believes that He who creates, is born every day.

Arcupuncture Urbaine

Jaime Lerner

Arcupuncture Urbaine

Jaime Lerner

“Une bonne acupuncture permet d’entendre le son normal des villes. Faire le silence pour épurer le vrai son. Accorder le son de la ville.
Avant, il y avait des gens dont la noble mission consistait à allumer les lampes à gaz des villes. Moi, je voudrais être l’accordeur de leur son.” Jaime Lerner

Acupuntura Urbana

Jaime Lerner

Acupuntura Urbana

Jaime Lerner

La obra supone una advertencia sobre la capacidad de la sociedad de transformar los lugares en los que vive y una reflexión para que las cosas que hacen que existan las ciudades continúen renovadas y mejoradas y sobre las herramientas necesarias para tratar una ciudad. En la introducción del libro, Lerner se pregunta “por qué determinadas ciudades consiguen transformaciones importantes y positivas”, a lo que responde que “en ellas se propició un comienzo, un despertar (…) una buena acupuntura. Una verdadera acupuntura urbana”.

Acupuntura Urbana

Jaime Lerner

Acupuntura Urbana

Jaime Lerner

Em Acupuntura Urbana, Jaime Lerner mostra que o planejamento é um projeto, que por melhor que seja não consegue gerar transformações imediatas. Quase sempre é uma centelha que inicia uma ação e a subseqüente propagação desta ação. É o que Lerner chama de uma boa acupuntura. Uma verdadeira acupuntura urbana.
