    La problemática habitacional actual de la ciudad de Buenos Aires gira en torno a dos fenómenos: la precariedad y los desalojos, en un contexto que se concibe de emergencia habitacional. Como reacción a esta situación, algunos organismos institucionales y ciertas organizaciones sociales con anclaje territorial en la zona sur de la ciudad comenzaron a llevar adelante acciones de resiliencia frente a los desalojos masivos que, como consecuencia de la presión inmobiliaria, afectaban a los hoteles, pensiones, inquilinatos y casas tomadas de esta zona de la ciudad.

    The dispersion has given rise to a different mode of city production. Throughout history, urban planning has sought to act on several occasions about the growth of the city and the preservation of green space. In the present work aims to identify the tools that provide the Greater London Plan and the Holland Notes to finish the city while preserving the rural space. The study shows in both cases, the State has exercised control over the urban planning, land use and connectivity of urban centers across transport networks.

    Una de las principales preocupaciones dentro de los estudios en Tecnologías de Información Geográfica es el desarrollo de metodologías reproducibles en diferentes ciudades que contribuyan al análisis del proceso de urbanización. El objetivo de este trabajo es proponer una nueva metodología que permita extraer la superficie edificada del área urbana y discrimine las distintas densidades que en ella existen. La metodología se basa en imágenes satelitales Landsat 5 TM que presenta una vasta cobertura territorial y temporal que asegura la posibilidad de réplica.

    This is an empirical study of economic measurement of the optimal size of
    seven cities in West Sumatra region, Indonesia. The empirical findings are quite interesting
    since the calculated optimal city size does not result in a single measure as mostly
    previous studies found, but they vary in accordance with the economic approaches used.
    The optimal city size measured by using the maximum profit approach would have been
    larger in size compared to those measured by the minimum cost and maximum net benefit

    Urban sprawl has become a remarkable characteristic of urban development worldwide in the last decades. Urban sprawl refers to the extent of urbanization, which is a global phenomenon mainly driven by population growth and large scale migration. In developing countries like Iran, urban sprawl is taking its toll on the natural resources at an alarming pace. The purpose of this paper is to study urban growth and effective factors on them in the city of Urmia, Iran. We used quantitive data of the study area from the period between 1989 and 2007, and population censuses of Urmia.

    The scope of this article is to observe the complexity of the relations between Rome’s University Campus of Tor Vergata and its discursive universe, from the former abusive districts to the re-qualified images of the suburbs of the 8th City Hall, raised to the rank of Centralities in the New Regulatory Plan of Rome.

    The present study assesses changes (1949-2008) in the structure of a Mediterranean urban area (Rome, Italy) in three phases (compact growth, medium-density growth, low-density growth) of its recent expansion which reflect different economic contexts at the local scale. Using a quantitative approach based on land-use indicators and landscape metrics, distribution and fragmentation of built-up areas were analyzed from high-resolution and diachronic digital maps covering the investigated area (1,500 km2).

    Immediately after the 1967 war and the occupation of the West Bank and Gaza the national religious youngsters (Gush Emmunim settlers) reached out to settle the new frontier of the biblical places. By thus, they have developed a Messianic myth. The interpretation of Gush-Emmunim settlers’ experience of landscapes reveals a complex and contradictory structure of sense of space. Settlers’ mythical sense of space may be understood in two strata - imagined and material.

    Richmond, Virginia has implemented numerous mixed land-use policies to encourage non-private-vehicle commuting for decades based on the best practices of other cities and the assumption that land-use mixture would positively lead to trip reduction. This paper uses both Geographical Information Systems (GIS) and statistical tools to empirically test this hypothesis. With local land use and trip making data as inputs, it first calculates two common indices of land-use mixture - entropy and dissimilarity indices, using GIS tool, supplemented by Microsoft Excel.
