MRSZ 2018: Social Risk Map For Zaragoza. From Population Management Technique To Commons Consolidation Practices


Since the end of 2013, the Open Source Architectures research group at Universidad San Jorge’s School of Architecture and Technology has been collaborating with the Professional Association of Social Workers of Aragon on the development of a Social Risk Map. This project, funded by the Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, aims to develop the Social Risk Map concept announced in the Aragon Regional Planning Act (2009). A mixed methodology has been designed to provide an alternative method for assessing areas and neighbourhoods in Zaragoza which are most sensitive to the loss of socio-community relations and their interrelation with the rest of the city. The goal is, firstly, to obtain a methodology that incorporates the social sphere as a platform from which to assess risks arising in the urbanized territory and, secondly, to be able to apply this methodology to other cities.

I love learning, teaching and researching, as well as sharing and visualizing data, specially with maps. I have a technical and social background and my multiple research interests are centered around the commodifications between cities, technology and society within informationalism and free culture paradigm. So far, I have applied that approach on the topic of social and spatial inequities.
