PREDIO is a documentary project that shows the intimate relationships of 200 families living inside an abandoned building in the city of São Paulo, Brazil.

From 2013 to 2018, Javier Álvarez visited this community for periods over two to three months every year, motivated by the social impact these illegal settlements have on modern society and how we look at our cities.

The whole body of work consists of photographs, collages, interviews, and archival material.

In 2022, “PREDIO” was acquired by the National Center for Contemporary Arts (CHILE) to be included in its permanent collection. Ediciones Buen Lugar published the book, making the title a finalist in the Lucie Foundation Book Prize for the “First Book" category, finalist for FELIFA 2023 photobook award, and first prize for the Latin American Design Awards for best editorial design.
