Abstract

GUEVARA, Tomás  and  NUNEZ, Paula. THE CITY IN DISPUTE: ECONOMYAND TERRITORY IN SAN CARLOS DE BARILOCHE,ARGENTINA . Diálogo Andino [online]. 2014, n.45, pp.153-167. ISSN 0719-2681.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0719-26812014000300013.

This article delves into the linkages between entrepreneurial interests related to real estate and tourism and urban policy in the city of San Carlos de Bariloche, through the dynamics of the land market and the dispute over the appropriation and use of urban space. In this sense, the work provides a reflection on the relationship between the models of economic and urban development of contemporary cities, relationship that is often lost of sight in the literature. To do this, a case study of the Barrio 10 de Diciembre is carried forward, through documentary sources and interviews. This area appears as a paradigmatic case of a disputed area of the city to the convergence between the economic interests of the private sector and a urban planning functional to such interests. In this framework, the Barrio 10 de Diciembre has been one of the areas with more compulsive attempts of eradication, because of real estate pressures and the city image embodied in the different urban planning instruments, which reserve peripheral land for popular sectors. The history of this neighborhood summarizes many of the tensions, historical and contextual, which structured the city and which seem to be replicated in other cities linked to the tourist exploitation.

Keywords : Urbanization; Urban policies; urban space appropriation.
