Rio's Government Social Inclusion Advisory

"Léo Dias is an architect of complex bridges. He designs projects that connect people who would never meet: Organic and natural leaders from Rio's favelas and private companies with a social agenda. Leonardo's innovative bridges sustain the dialogue in the diveded city of Rio de Janeiro."

Leonardo's ability to create a real impact on the environments in which he operates sets him apart. His humanist sensitivity is practical, not rhetoric. In a world where the growing inequality challenges democratic institutions and the migration flow breaks national identities we need more people like Leonardo Dias.
