Displacement and Migration as an Urban Issue

Parangolé is an annual, independent journal that challenges ideas on urbanization, design, and architecture by initiating a global dialogue on topics such as mobility, migration, fluidity, and multiplicity. The journal expands on the cultural, social, and political significance of what it means to live in the city. The title of the magazine pays homage to the work of Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica, extending his central tenet that "life is movement" from the body to the city. The first issue of Parangolé, titled Motherland, focuses on the space of habitation for those who live in precarious and transitory conditions due to economic hardship, conflict, and violence. People on the move face unique challenges and vulnerabilities that must be identified and addressed in urban settings. With Motherland, researchers and practitioners are brought together to think about these issues and their solutions.

The Parangolé series was conceived by ALFREDO BRILLEMBOURG (*1961). He studied architectural design at Columbia University and architecture at the Central University of Venezuela. In 1998, he founded the Urban-Think Tank (U-TT) in Caracas, Venezuela, with Hubert Klumpner.
