Descripción
This panel proposes to consider the changing role of social housing architecture in the Latin American city: from its preeminence and international acclaim in the 1950s, to its fall under the opportunistic use of corrosive theories against centralized housing production systems since the late 60s. Well-known contributions to this latter criticism, like Michel de Certeau?s and John Turner?s, stressed the emancipatory potentials of a social production of space and domesticity, appropriation tactics working against, beyond, or disconnected from the strategies of modern social housing architecture and planning. In Europe after 2008, when the idea of a ?participatory society? became instrumental to the dismantling of Welfare Estate policies, such promises came to the fore again, together with a new fascination for the Latin American informal city. A city which is often contemplated from an adequate distance, and in a binary relation with the formal, bureaucratized and regulated city. High-profile designs for favelas, villas, pueblos jóvenes and other informal settlements have been repeatedly approached in architectural schools and magazines, while terms like ?urban acupuncture? became fashionable. Manuel de Solà-Morales, who claimed the original coinage of the term, was clear about its dangerous employment and the need to keep in mind a wider urban and territorial picture. A picture in which the so-called informal city can be seen, again, as the mere result of segregation strategies, related to what Bernardo Secchi identified, paraphrasing Manuel Castell?s famous book, a ?new urban question?: the increasing social and spatial inequality of contemporary cities. Discarding the naïve association between self-built city and democratic or participatory society, and the identification of urban planning and official housing policies with corrupted bureaucracy and inefficiency, it?s time to ask again about the fate of social housing and its architecture.
