The Latin American IFHP Office was inaugurated at FAU-PUCRS – School of Architecture and Urbanism of Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil, last Wednesday 21th. The Office is localized in Porto Alegre, a city in south of Brazil near to Uruguay, Argentina, Chile, in a big university. Prof. Arch. Paulo Horn Regal, Director of School - and IFHP's Council Member - says that the aims are to create an IFHP  base in South Latin working as an “antenna” for both brazilians and south americans involved on study and policy about urban challenges,  and promote events and programs of IFHP. FAU-PUCRS is a “five stars” school of architecture in Brazil that promotes a lot of events and projects on social housing, urban mobility and sustainability, public policies, new cities and some other themes. The Office is already working and could be contacted in Portuguese, Spanish and English languages.
