Architecture | Projet Colibri : Plate-forme collaborative de gestion de projets urbains | Imagination For People | Scoop.it

Nous avons fait la rencontre de Samuel au workshop, un français architecte et ingénieur, qui a vécu plus d’un an à Caracas dans les hauteurs de Petare Norte, dans le Barrios Julián Blancos. Pour quelques semaines au Venezuela - afin de participer entre autre au CSS Workshop 2009 - il nous a emmené dans son ancien quartier.

 

La visite a eu lieu sous angle de l’architecture et des risques liés au caractère autoproduit ou informel des Barrios. Ces risques architecturaux, au-delà de la violence, sont les suivants :

Participatory Maps for Inclusive Cities | TheCityFix

Participatory Maps for Inclusive Cities | TheCityFix | Imagination For People | Scoop.it

Participatory maps are an increasingly important aspect of studying and planning more inclusive cities. Inviting residents to participate in map-making gives them a voice in the spatial planning process. It also provides insights into how they use their cities – where they live, where they work, where they cycle.
