The Politics of Public Space in Latin America

MDC Museum of Art + Design, Freedom Tower

Add to calendar

This panel will consider cutting-edge urban initiatives in various Latin American cities, and the two paths they suggest to neighborhood revitalization through urban design. One is the vision of elected officials such as mayors, and the other emerges from grassroots activism. Cities like Medellin, Caracas, and Mexico City have been at the forefront of new initiatives in formerly underserved communities. A discussion of these projects will serve as a base for future choices Miami could consider.

Panelists: Alejandro Haiek (LAB PRO FAB, Venezuela), Jorge Pérez Jaramillo (Santo Tomás University, Medellin, Colombia), Lorena Zárate (Hábitat International Coalition)

Moderator: Dr. Sonia Chao (University of Miami)
