The German artist Erik Göngrich says about his new piece praca nueva brasilia (picture) which he just finished some days ago in Brazil:

Probably the biggest advantage of this whole intervention is that everybody is now accepting this area as a “praca”, a public place, in an informal area where every minute somebody could decide to occupy this land and build a house on it.

So a little bit it is fighting against this description I got told from Nivaldo, a Salvadorian architect:

“Public space in Brazil is the place for none or it is my space!”
