La ciudad calidoscópica

Main Article Content


Pedro Abramo


Este artículo es una búsqueda que consiste en saber si sería posible pensar la emergencia de una configuración espacial (orden espacial) con fundamento en el discurso de la economía, esto es, teniendo en cuenta solamente las elecciones individuales y descentralizadas de localización cuyo mecanismo de coordinación sería el mercado. Con este propósito, estudiaré en un primer momento el abordaje neoclásico que presenta un orden (equilibrio) espacial único, estable y eficiente, en seguida, propondré un camino alternativo,heterodoxo, donde el orden espacial que resulta de la coordinación mercantil surge, antes, como pertinente a una estructura caleidoscópica cuya frontera entre el orden y el desorden del uso del suelo urbano es opaca y mutante. Es también mí propósito desarrollar un discurso heterodoxo tomando por base ciertas dificultades (y temas) con que se depara la ortodoxia espacial, cuando las elecciones son intertemporales e interdependientes. Conviene señalar que asumimos siempre el discurso de la economía sobre las relaciones mercantiles,por tanto, las nociones y las conclusiones mencionadas están fuertemente ligadas a esta opción inicial.



This article is a search that is whether it would be possible to consider the emergence of a spatial configuration (spatial arrangement) on the basis of the discourse of the economy, that is, taking into account only individual choices and location decentralized coordination mechanism which would be the market. To this end, I will study at first the neoclassical approach that presents an order (balance) sole space, stable and efficient at once, I will propose an alternative way, heterodox, where the spatial order resulting from the commercial coordination arises, before, as relevant to a kaleidoscopic structure whose border between order and disorder of urban land use is opaque and mutant. It is also my intention to develop a heterodox discourse by drawing some difficulties (and themes) with orthodoxy holds that space, where choices are intertemporal and interdependentes. Always assumed to be noted that the speech of the economy on market relations, so the concept and the above findings are closely tied to this original.
