Public green spaces in the neighbourhood of Pompeia (west end of São Paulo) demanded urgent care. A square attracted people who formed the collective Ocupy and Embrace. The place was beautiful yet neglected and people were touched by its potential. Other members of the collective met during the Contest “The Pompeia we want” in Democratic City, in which “Revitalizalização the Plaza Homer Smith” was a proposal applied and monitored. It has turned from an idea to a real action.
