Ciudades radicales Free read Ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Este viaje por lugares extremos en América Latina empieza en México a la sombra de una inmensa barriada de viviendas sociales de la década de 1960 cuando las colmenas de pisos baratos parecían la solución a la escasez de vivienda Sigue visitando las villas miseria de Buenos Aires los cerros de Caracas las favelas de Río las casas ampl. Much gets written about the mass urbanisation happening in China and Africa but Latin America is often strangely overlooked even though it went through almost identical patterns half a century ago and in some countries has over 80% of the population living in cities In the process it experimented with many different approaches often swinging rapidly back and forth between housing as a basic human right for the government to provide and the sometimes ideological sometimes merely pragmatic ideal that people by which of course we mean the poor should build their own housesIn recent times cities such as Medell n in Colombia have been internationally recognised as places that have been completely transformed in this case from the murder capital of the world largely through architecture and the region is full of architecture as activism projects And so McGuirk previously editor of international architecture magazine Icon sets off on a tour of Latin America to find out how much the reality lives up to the hype The short answer It doesn t but it s still impressive anywayThe book takes an extended look at numerous approaches to city building in the loosest sense from the very basic level of providing housing PREVI in Per and the uinta Monroy build people half a house and let them build the rest approach in Chil through the gentrification of the favelas in Rio and the effects of the city building out for the Olympics and the World Cup the transformation of public spaces such as Medell n s library parks the crucial importance of transport infrastructure in cities where being poor can add two hours to how long it takes to get to work or a hospital what happens when 3000 people take over an abandoned 45 storey corporate skyscraper as a suat with no elevators or when mega cities get big enough to span national boundaries to Antanas Mockus attempts to transform Bogot primarily through transforming the people themselvesThese all make for fascinating stories and the author does a good job of avoiding oversimplification understanding and reiterating constantly that there are no easy answers to many of the uestions that these projects are attempting to deal with or themselves raise and that it s often unclear to what extent any of these can be successfully replicated elsewhere The travelogue interview style of writing can drag and grate at times particularly when he goes full blown architecture nerd wandering Peruvian social housing projects playing spot the architect That s clearly a Stirling but is that a van Eyck or an Alexander and the book presupposes a uite high level of understanding of architectural topics assuming that the reader needs no further explanation for the continual references to Le Corbusier Brutalism etc This makes the book a difficult read at times particularly in the early chapters which is particularly disappointing as there s no real reason why this should be so The book will be interesting and useful to many non architects and providing a simpler entry point to some of the concepts would have made it much accessible Thankfully I found the subject matter compelling enough to plough on through the worst parts The areas I had known something about previously have had much too little written about them in English so this is a very welcome addition even with these flawsI was also slightly surprised to find only a single passing remark to Porto Alegre s now widely copied approach of Participatory Budgeting and none at all to initiatives like Belo Horizonte s People s Restaurants or S o Paulo banning all public advertising as noise pollution But there s room for many books on all these topics and hopefully there are indeed many to comeAdvance review copy provided through edelweiss
