Alto da Boa Vista
Barra da Tijuca
15th part of the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon (concept): 2.372 kilometers in 19:08 minutes – completed on Wednesday, April 13th 2016, in the quarter Lapa (overall map). The artist Gabriela Noujaim (*1983) lives in Rio de Janeiro (more about her).
Why did you choose this part to represent Rio de Janeiro at the First Rio City Aesthetic Marathon?
In this part of Rio a big social inequality converges at the same time with creative cultural movements where a lot happens on the street: cultural trends, street artists, everything gathered and in a common space.
