What can a landfill become?

There's a wonderful movement happening in cities around the world where degraded areas are being converted into public spaces.  Many of these initiatives are taking place through public-private partnerships. This month, here in São Paulo, what used to be a landfill and a deactivated garbage incinerator has been transformed into a fantastic cultural area called the Victor Civita Square.  Because the soil is contaminated, a large wooden deck was built to connect the spaces and it also leads to an open-air amphitheater.  New gardens had to be suspended and the old incinerator became an educational area to promote good environmental practices and also houses a museum dedicated to sustainability.  An awesome initiative by Instituto Abril - the foundation responsible for Abril's social responsibility projects - in partnership with the City of São Paulo.
