The purpose of this article is to show the social time that Lima’s people lose because of the transport system, whether they travel by car or by public transport.</p> 2020-02-20T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) Informal settlements and habitat: an analysis of cases in the city of Posadas, Argentina 2020-07-01T10:29:49-05:00 Walter F. Brites Miguel A. Avalos <p>This article develops an exploratory approach, with descriptive analysis, on different cases of informal settlements in the city of Posadas, Argentina. A city where the emergence of new settlements, and the amount of population residing in them, makes it an empirical case, crucial for these studies. The links between habitat, health and poverty are evident, within the framework of socio-urban conditions. Beyond vulnerability in access to land and housing deficit, residents of settlements face various problems in terms of employment, food, health, education, environmental sanitation, etc. On the other hand, apart from structural constraints, it is interesting to know how they experience the adversities inherent in the environment and what are the individual or collective practices they develop to overcome everyday difficulties.</p> 2020-04-13T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos Megacities: context, climate change and the challenge of urban sustainability 2020-07-01T10:33:19-05:00 Alejandro Mendoza-Jaramillo <p>This article offers a brief theoretical review of three academic and political positions to intervene in cities, in light of the needs and challenges posed by Climate Change and Urban Sustainability: Urban Containment, Creation of Spaces and Urban Acupuncture. In this way, it is interesting to know the scope, limitations, convergences and divergences of such positions, to generate debate against the current needs that the planning of Megacities shows. The article ends with some reflections on the challenges of Climate Change and Urban Sustainability.</p> 2020-05-22T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos Reintegration of the Factory to the City, through the Parasitism and Urban Regeneration 2020-07-01T10:37:15-05:00 Luis Felipe Andica Pérez Andrés Mauricio García Lozano <p>The article answers the question: How to reinstate the Factory to a City System? The Industrial Zone of La Tebaida, Quindío was established as a place of study. The methodology starts from a qualitative analysis of the place and a search for tools that conceptualize an urban transformation model. The concepts of Parasitism and Urban Regeneration are established as instruments that allow reinterpreting the space and function of the Factory around urban dynamics. The results determine a conceptual urban model, in which the Factory is recycled and given value, allowing it to become part of the living city system.</p> 2020-06-19T06:54:48-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos Caribbean Chronotopy: A Look at the Poetics of the Caribbean House 2020-07-01T10:40:51-05:00 Angélica María Sierra-Franco <p>Starting from a semantic construction of the experience of living, the intertextuality referred to the chronotopic view of the Caribbean house is reflected on the cultural importance of the formation of places and their aesthetic relationship as an image in Colombian literature. The Caribbean house is a geo-symbolic device, which transcends physical-spatial values, and denotes its anthropological and social character, representing the embodiment of a certain culture, which is verbalized through the collective imagination, in a literature necessary to capture and externalize the strength of a geographic and cultural space-time.</p> 2020-06-04T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos Tradition, Meaning and Training in the Development of Female Bricklayers in Latin America 2020-07-01T10:44:39-05:00 Wendy Margarita Montes-Ponce Otniel Josafat López-Altamirano <p>The participation of Female Bricklayers in construction has increased in recent years. Training in the trade represents disadvantages that originate, both biologically and gender. The purpose of this article is to expose the conditions under which Female Bricklayers develop in Latin America, demonstrating that labor recognition has undergone political, business and social assemblies, until achieving their formalization of academic learning, enhancing their knowledge, skills and family economy. Progress has paid off positively. However, permanent public policies are required to strengthen academic programs, involving urban and rural environments.</p> 2020-06-15T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos Research in History: City, Memory and Architecture 2020-07-01T10:48:10-05:00 Juan Carlos Pérgolis-Valsecchi <p>Doing research in City and Architecture implies placing yourself in a place and a moment, in the spirit of time of what you want to investigate. This is based on two concepts: the idea of Zeitgeist, that corpus of objects and cultural attitudes that must be observed simultaneously; and the idea of a subject in process. Investigating the history of the City and Architecture is, then, making theory, because one cannot do without the other. From this point of view, we try to observe some referents of the process: Time, as raw material; the Interpretation of Sources; the Space-Place and Memory-History Dichotomies; and Social Representations and Imaginaries. To conclude, pointing out that being objective does not imply being neutral in the face of the events of History, because this way you can access the plurality of meanings of Architecture and the City.</p> 2020-06-24T10:26:49-05:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Procesos Urbanos
