This book is just rubbishI found it by chance while looking for urban transport in South America being a brazilian myself and I don t know how to describe my disappointmentThis is the kind of architecture literature that people find acceptable where slums are described as resourceful where poverty is considered exotic and interesting where the foreword contain anarchist uotes and there is no mention whatsoever about objective elements of urbanism transport zoning topography history and city scape Being from Rio de Janeiro myself and knowing slums intimately I could only laugh by reading the clich over used phrases about periphery about crime about police brutality about corruption It s as if someone built their worldview through NY Times articles or stupid movies like Central do BrasilI thought the book would have a chapter dedicated to Curitiba the city where BRT was invented and where this urban solution can be evaluated the very own notion of new architecture but nothing he just talks about Bogot in the same politized bipolarized way he talks about Rio and this is all you have about BRT Clearly there is to these cities than this romantized black and white viva la revolucion lens can offerI expected pages about Argentina tram networks the biggest in S America about Mendoza yet also nothing Instead he just goes on and on about politics in a superficial way talking of dictatorship coronelismos and similar content fit to forum postsClearly the kind of useless ramblings of leftist leaning first worlders visiting poorexoticresourceful third world with not a single objective or rational word about urbanism or architecture they only see what they want to see and are willing to distort information in order to build this narrative to you We can imagine how amazing it must be for such kind of americans or europeans to visit Brazil or Colombia they can always go back they are not stuck here having to come up with real solutions for real problems it s the same orientalizing romanticizing tourism british people did in the middle east centuries ago
