Alessandra sounds like a great idea & should be successful with the positive publicity it will get etc. Is cob or earth building a local way of building in your area? Adobe is common in spanish speaking areas incl S.America (eg Peru), never heard of any in Brazil. In general its good I feel to look for traditional local methods that have worked well (and there may be expertise in them even if only among the very old) Sao Paolo is sub-tropical I think, is it wet or humid ? Not very I believe, so suitable for earth building. Maybe look at local soil type in the proposed location and that can help choose the best earth building type. Cob developed in my native SW England with a very specific soil type; rammed earth is much more forgiving of soil type and can be done with modern construction methods.
