Latin GSD Lecture: Fabrizio Gallanti, “Las Ciudades del Boom-Economic Growth, Urban life and architecture in the Latin American City, 1989-2014”

The presentation will explore the differences between causality and correlation, analyzing a series of case studies where the transformation of economy, phenomena of urban growth and novel forms of architectural design can constitute new narratives about the Latin American contemporary city. Gated communities in Rosario, office compounds in Panama City, intensive residential densification in Mexico, new factories around Santiago de Chile are some of the physical traces of complex economic, political and social processes, redefining urban life.

In conjunction with Luis Valenzuela’s course SES-05360-Territorial Intelligence: Towards an Evidence Based Design
