Eje 01 – The Politics of the Plan

The Politics of the Plan looks at the way in which political ideologies – such as capitalism, communism, colonialism, patriarchy, racism, etc. – materialise at different scales, from the urban to the domestic, with a direct impact on the architectural plan and the different ways of inhabiting. The contributions that make up this edition explore the political and social dimension of spaces from architecture, urbanism, territory, art and the links between them.

The various creative formats, essays, conversations, cartographic and artistic practices, and podcasts, are organised into three “Ejes”: Urbanisation and Spatial Differentiation, Alternative Approaches for Uncertain Futures, and Inhabiting from the Body. Together, the contributions are situated in a broad and diverse context in Latin America and address common themes such as scale, accessibility, gender, society and environment.
