Similar dynamics reshaped London&rsquo;s Clays Lane Estate, Beijing&rsquo;s hutongs, the Marousi Roma settlement in Athens, Barcelona&rsquo;s Poblenou and Seoul&rsquo;s hanoks. . . . Today the people of Vila Aut&oacute;dromo are struggling for what housing scholar-activist Chester Hartman has aptly called &ldquo;the right to stay put.&rdquo;</p></em><br /><br /><p> As plans unfold for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, MIT's Lawrence Vale and Annemarie Gray consider the case of Vila Aut&oacute;dromo, a former fishing colony on the Olympic site whose residents have organized to resist displacement. They compare ongoing events in Rio to the demolition of Atlanta's Techwood Homes, the first public housing in America, prior to the 1996 Olympics.</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/57499569/editor-s-picks-282 Editor's Picks #282 Nam Henderson 2012-09-18T11:58:00-04:00 >2012-09-18T12:49:22-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/rb/rblnhojknks6zrbx.jpg" width="365" height="500" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>The NYT reported that Pedro E.
