Premier: A Story of Dreams, a film about Jaime Lerner

Brazilian architect and mayor, Jaime Lerner led the movement that transformed the Brazilian city of Curitiba. Be the first to see a film about his groundbreaking work.

RIBA host the European Premier of Jaime Lerner’s documentary of his work.

Jaime Lerner is a community architect and transformational city leader who believes ordinary people, with their positive energy can upgrade their environment. As Parana State Governor, Curitiba Mayor, and practicing architect within the America’s and Africa, he believes sustainability succeeds by releasing ordinary people’s latent energy to survive and prosper.

The event will begin with a welcome from Ben Derbyshire, RIBA President, followed introductions by Jaime Lerner and Dr Tia Kansara, Economist and consultant. Then the screening of A Story of Dreams will take place followed by a Q&A session with Jaime Lerner, who is joining us on a rare visit from Brazil.

Jaime Lerner has been invited to tour the UK in an initiative by Rod Hackney PPRIBA and Dr Tia Kansara of Kansara Hackney Ltd - sponsored by Weston Williamson and George Ferguson PPRIBA.
