The west area of the city of Rio de Janeiro as a hub of urban expansion for housing of social interest: considerations from the minha casa minha vida program in Senador Camara


Patricia Nicola*

The present article approached the west zone of the city of Rio de Janeiro as an axis of urban expansion for social housing from the considerations of the Minha Casa Minha Vida Program- PMCMV in Senador Camará. The relevance of the theme arose from the concerns of professional performance by the Municipality of the City of Rio de Janeiro as a Social Worker in the post-occupancy stage (this stage in which the residents already reside in the housing units) of the PMCMV in the Destri condominiums (residents from via lottery) and Speranza (residents coming from the settlement), taking the period from 2011 to 2013 as a time frame. It is important to point out that my investigation and subsequent analysis were mediated by my experience and professional coexistence with the residents from different situations in both projects, as our work took place in the place of residence of these people; in other words, I was immersed in the daily life of the residents of these two condominiums.
