Note Editore

This title of AD will explore current urban design strategies within the historic urban context as Latin America stands on the precipice of globalisation, and has the opportunity to undergo major change once again. A number of questions will be pursued including: what could enable this new modernisation to benefit the whole crosssection of Latin American society? What approaches will allow for the small scale to benefit and continue to contribute to these cities? If Latin America can find an alternative architecture to match its progressive ambitions, will it be based on a different methodology and approach rather than on aesthetics? How can Latin America benefit from the global economic and cultural exchange? In the context of the recent Copenhagen treaty, what can we learn from these cities in terms of their highly efficient and creative use of resources? To explore these issues, the publication will be divided into four principal sections: the first section will provide the historic context and an understanding of the socioeconomic issues faced by Latin American cities. The remaining three sections will discuss contemporary responses to such issues at different scales. At the regional scale, it will look at political borders and development corridors. At the city scale, it will analyse the revitalisations of Curibita, Bogota and Medellin and the current plans for the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro in 2016. Finally at the local scale, it will cover how architectural practices, research-based organisations and university studios are responding to issues on the ground. The most prominent contributors will be: architect Ricardo Porro, the economist Hernando De Soto, sociologist Saskia Sassen, the urbanist Ricky Burdett of the Urban Age, the architect Teddy Cruz, Ernesto Peñalosa (exgovernor of Bogota), the Caracas ThinkTank and Alejandro Aravena of Elemental.




Sommario

Guest-editor Mariana Leguía The announcement of Rio de Janeiro as the 2016 Olympic host city has placed Latin America on the world's stage. Latin America has not been the centre of international architectural attention and pilgrimage since the mid 20th century when economic growth triggered the development of Modernist urban design and architecture on an epic scale. Since then the centralised, utopian planned model has broken down. Mass migrations from the countryside and erection of informal settlements have left cities socially and spatially divided. Within this context and in the mist of globalization Latin America is set to go though major change once again. In recent decades, resourceful governments and practices have developed innovative approaches to urban design and development, less to do with the utopian and totalitarian schemes and more to do with "urban acupuncture", working within rather than denying the framework of informality to stitch together disparate parts of the city. This title of AD will explore the current urban issues faced by Latin American cities and the response of alternative local practitioners at different scales. Large-scale urban case studies, such as the revitalisation of Bogotá and Medellin, will be featured alongside architectural practices, research-based organisations and university studios working at a grass-roots level. Contributors include: Saskia Sassen, Hernando de Soto, Ricky Burdett and Bogotá ex-mayor Enrique Peñalosa. Featured architects: Teddy Cruz, UTT-Urban Think-Tank, Jorge Jauregui, Alejandro Echeverri, MMBB and Alejandro Aravena.

The announcement of Rio de Janeiro as the 2016 Olympic host city has placed Latin America on the world's stage. Latin America has not been the centre of international architectural attention and pilgrimage since the mid 20th century when economic growth triggered the development of Modernist urban design and architecture on an epic scale. Since then the centralised, utopian planned model has broken down. Mass migrations from the countryside and erection of informal settlements have left cities socially and spatially divided. Within this context and in the mist of globalization Latin America is set to go though major change once again.

In recent decades, resourceful governments and practices have developed innovative approaches to urban design and development, less to do with the utopian and totalitarian schemes and more to do with "urban acupuncture", working within rather than denying the framework of informality to stitch together disparate parts of the city.

Large-scale urban case studies, such as the revitalisation of Bogot? and Medellin, will be featured alongside architectural practices, research-based organisations and university studios working at a grass-roots level.
