Summa+ 177

The planet’s surface is limited and an important consequence of the search for sustainable urban development has been a revival due to the interest in the compact city, which suggests a new look at the notion of megastructure.
Although at present we are very clear that urban problems are interdisciplinary, we can ask ourselves how to rethink the city and the processes that occur in it, as well as the way in which these should be conceived and designed from our own discipline.
From this perspective, it makes sense to revisit some of the urban proposals, utopian or not, that were developed during the first half of the 20th century. This review does not want to project a nostalgic look at failed utopias, but to highlight the role of architecture in the physical construction of the city.
