    O Bahiadoc acompanhou o processo de desocupação da famosa Torre David, em Caracas. A Torre, que inicialmente seria um centro financeiro de arquitetura ostensiva, foi abandonada já em avançado estado de construção em meados dos anos 1990. Nos anos 2000, famílias de Caracas em busca de moradia ocuparam a Torre, que mede cerca de 170m e tem mais de 40 andares, desafiando os riscos das estruturas inacabadas e subvertendo a função arquitetônica do prédio e a lógica urbanística da região, umas das mais centrais de Caracas. A desocupação, implementada pelo Governo da Venezuela e integrando o extenso programa governamental para moradia "Gran Misión Viviendas", foi conduzida com eficácia e tranquilidade pelo Ministro de Estado para la Transformación Revolucionária de la Gran Caracas, Ernesto Villegas, e acompanhada pelo escritor Tariq Ali. O vídeo é um breve registro de nossa presença na Torre durante a desocupação. Caracas, 24 de julho de 2014. O vídeo é uma realização independente de Camele Queiroz e Fabricio ramos.

          The projects of Urban-Think Tank are mostly directed to the most disadvantaged neighborhoods and around the world - with limited resources – they’ve already moved a lot. Their installation "Torre David / Gran Horizons" is dedicated to a resident community in an occupied skyscraper in Caracas (Venezuela): The office building was never completed because of the economic crisis in the 1990s and remained a ruin, in which little by little more than 750 families quartered. For a year Brillembourg and Klumpner accompanied by their teams investigated the physical and social organization of this community.
