Braak!

BY TIM VAN DEN BURG
@ VOL 10 ON APR 22, 2014

In Breda is ruim 160 ha braakliggend terrein, waarvan het merendeel direct aan het centrum grenst. Dit is ongeveer even groot als Breda Centrum zelf. BRAAK! wil voorkomen dat deze terreinen veranderen in 'blindspots' en ziet volop mogelijkheden om de terreinen te benutten voor tijdelijke projecten. Projecten die verrassen, inspireren of tot nadenken stemmen.

The story of the biggest urban forest in the world: Floresta da Tijuca

BY JULIA TADDEI
@ VOL 29 ON FEB 29, 2016

Do you know where is the biggest urban forest in the world? It's in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil! The backyard of the house where Julia Taddei grew up is part of this forest, called Floresta da Tijuca.

Julia tells you more about the relationship between the "Cariocas", the inhabitants of Rio de Janeiro, with the forest, and the fact that it is not a native forest but rather the result of a major reforestation project undertaken around 150 years ago.
