Founded in 1990, Usina intervenes in processes involving planning, design and construction by the workers themselves, mobilizing public funds in the context of a struggle for urban and agrarian reform in Brazil. Usina has already been involved in the conception and execution of more than 5 thousand housing units in differing contexts throughout the country. The practice works on the development of urban programmes and plans and assists in the training and organization of work cooperatives, creating materials and workshops for education of the people. By intervening directly in the spatial production, Usina helps to develop social and productive experiences that are anti-hegemonic and reveal possible paths for confronting the capitalist logic.
