URBAN PROSPECTION | RECOVERY OF UNUSED SPACES FOR CULTURAL USES AND ADAPTATION TO EXISTING URBAN STRATEGIES

ABSTRACT

Urban diagnosis
The starting point was the development of strategies, understood as a program that is developed to achieve goals. The adjustment to those strategies have enabled the contemplation of tactical processes, discovering how to do it, ‘thinking about what one does.’ Selective analysis revealed invisible structures of our society.

Projects development
Converting into diagrams | The proposed concepts became diagrams. Program analysis, simplification and exaggeration of the initial situation were brought to a outlining point where one originally only knew scattered relationships: those could now be freely discussed in terms of relations of common interest. 
The concept | The recovery of disused buildings has been imagined as permeable, allowing high-level relations with surrounding flows. In this way, the building would work to coexist with its troubled situation and not attempt to order it, but to allow ‘stuff’ to happen there. 
The actions | Actions have been understood as a “bottom-up process” or renewal from below, less institutionalised, possibly more real and allowing to “think about what one does.” The initiatives have led to participation, social outreach and community work. 
Economic efficiency and patrimonial revitalisation | The reuse of disused buildings has pursued expanded goals, namely: functional sustainability related to interlocked programme solutions but with the possibility of independent or simultaneous activation, the forecast of future maintenance costs and, in particular, the social returns and/or cultural relationship with the financial resources invested.   

Keywords | Low-cost design, Design for all, Sustainable development, Social sustainability, Economic sustainability
