The Ground in the Cities

Andrea Maciel García

The intervention aims at occupying tension zones in the city, marked by the relation between street population and local working population. The work discusses social space and its oppositions, suggesting new forms of space appropriation in the context of social exclusion. The fundamental characteristic of this work is interaction with the specific urban context of each place, so it is a proposition of Urban Intervention that can be carried on with students and any willing people involved in the Seminar.
