CONNECTING CITY: PETARE NORTE. LANDSCAPING. USB

Maintaining the sustained work that has been done by the Universidad Simón Bolívar and the private company since 2009, in the transformation of the urban landscape in the informal areas of the city of Caracas, especially in the Sucre Municipality, their communities and the different parishes that comprise it, in addition to the interventions that have been made on the public space resulting from the informal weaving of its neighborhoods, which is constructed as self-management of its inhabitants, without formal planning, accessibility and public services.
The proposal is based on the construction of landscapes on the strong topography, returning to the gaps located on the banks of the streams and forgotten places, reinterpreting their strategies and ways of making public space. Among the objectives that are sought with this academic exercise is the need to educate through the public space, giving it a new dimension of dignity and equity by connecting them with the formal city. Like introducing the student to study this sector of the city, its needs and experiences, its inhabitants and landscapes, and propose possibilities of interventions that maintain the possibility of self-management and are based on notions or experiences of the same communities.
