Where Land And Water Meet, Mark N. Rhoades Oct 1991

Where Land And Water Meet, Mark N. Rhoades

Architecture Thesis Prep

"The intention of this thesis is to study the waterfront typology, and how the interplay of land and water through the insertion of architectural elements, can reform a sense of place from the shattered urban fabric. The purpose of the waterfront fabric is twofold; to present a facade to the waterfront, and activate the waterfront while maintaining a relationship back to the fabric of the city."

La Investigación Urbana En América Latina. Una Aproximación, Fernando Carrión Mena Jul 1991

La Investigación Urbana En América Latina. Una Aproximación, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Con este trabajo pretendemos realizar un primer acercamiento a la investigación urbana en América Latina, desde una perspectiva global y vista, por encima de los países, como unidad. Un trabajo necesario que desgraciadamente no cuenta con antecedentes: ni parcial ni globalmente, se han desarrollado balances de la investigación urbana en América Latina. Sin duda es un gran vacío, no sólo por su alcance, sino también por las implicaciones y requerimientos en la búsqueda de nuevas interpretaciones.


The Mall Comes To Town: Planning For Its Development, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray Jul 1991

The Mall Comes To Town: Planning For Its Development, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval, Edward Murray

Landscape Architecture & Regional Planning Faculty Publication Series

This article analyzes the impacts of malls on the character and economic base of a community. Based on both applied planning and academic research, it is clear that malls stimulate major changes in the community fabric. It is also apparent that community leaders who have a clear perception that their cities and towns have the potential to attract malls, and prepare for them, will be able to gain far more from their development than those that simply wait and see. The theme of this article, in short, is that a community either plans for a mall or it is planned ...


El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena Jun 1991

El Regreso A La Ciudad Construida, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

“The Return to the Built City”. This paper examines some hypotheses related to the transformation process that urban transportation in Quito is undergoing with the introduction of the trolleybus. The paper emphasizes an urban integrated perspective rather than a sectored one to provide a clearer perception of the process of transformation of the key channels which sustain the quality of urban communication. The paper comprises three parts: the first part defines the current context in which urban transport transformations develop; the second part examines the link between transportation and the new trends in urbanism; and the third and final part ...

Estrategias De Reinserción Residencial De Los Sectores Populares En Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1991

Estrategias De Reinserción Residencial De Los Sectores Populares En Quito, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La segregación residencial en Quito varía en su forma y contenido desde los años sesenta, debido a que los sectores populares enfrentan el dilema de su inserción residencial desde una situación de carencia de alternativas. Ante la ausencia de OPCIONES residenciales, los sectores populares se han visto en la obligación de desarrollar extremas ESTRATEGIAS de reproducción. La distinción entre opción y estrategia, permite diferenciar a los mecanismos individuales de comportamiento en un mercado, con las formas sociales de resistencia-sobrevivencia transformación que son propias de la condición de existencia de los sectores populares. La estrategia es un ámbito específico de conflicto ...


La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1991

La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Con este trabajo se trata de aportar en el conocimiento de la ciudad desde un claro énfasis en la gestión y planificación urbanas. La reflexión proviene desde la experiencia interna de un proceso particular de gestión-planificación municipal, como co-partícipe del mismo.

Esto si bien tiene su propia riqueza, no es menos cierto que carece de la distancia tan necesaria para la objetividad. También es una reflexión en estado primario que no compromete a la Institución; ello significa que es un trabajo personal en proceso de elaboración, sobre la base de una experiencia colectiva; no es propiamente la experiencia, sino son ...

b) Promote decentralization in the Ecuadorean urban process and strengthen municipalities;

c) Stimulate participation in decision-making and fiscalization of actions and strengthen popular representation.

The proposed planning must be one where there is constant feedback from results and desired goals as to create a situation of ...


Quito: Planeación Y Gobierno Municipal, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1991

Considero que este evento es muy importante porque nos reunimos un 12 de octubre, a un año del Quito Centenario de la llegada de Colón a este continente, principalmente para elaborar propuestas de análisis, de alternativas, de posibilidades integradas para el conjunto de América Latina, lo cual es muy valioso para aquellos que hoy tenemos responsabilidades a nivel de la gestión municipal y de la investigación urbana.
