One of my favorite books as a child growing up in Brazil in the 1980’s was “Cidades” (“Cities”).  With its colorful illustrations of cities and settlements from around the world, this book sparked my interest in urban planning. I recently leafed through it and was pleasantly surprised to see that “Cidades” didn’t shy away from discussing favelas, a social issue which is even more pronounced today.
