Loisaida, incubadora de urbanismos afectivodisidentes
by Natalia Matesanz Ventura, winner of the 5th edition of the Research Grant in New York.
The proposal, halfway between the artistic-experimental and productive research, explores the possibilities of modifying the physical and virtual space of the city through the participation of local communities, specifically studying the New York neighbourhood of Loisaida, and the way in which this modification occurred as a social and activist practice.
The grant allows architects to develop a research project over a six- month period, within the framework of a prestigious academic institution in New York. It is carried out in collaboration with the San Fernando Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
