This work received the Prize of the 2012 UNA-Palabra contest in the essay branch. His reflections and discussions show, with sufficient depth and criticality, a suggestive mapping of the city of San José, the Costa Rican capital.
The study creatively and rigorously analyzes the conflictive interactions caused by the choice between urban intervention practices (manufacturers and administrators of public space) and commercial street trading (illegitimate appropriations of said sites).
The intention of the text is to show in detail how public space is always political, as a place of hierarchies, social struggles and relations of both power and resistance. The richness of the historical and ethnographic concepts and results exposes the antagonisms inherent in the disputes of the urban as a resource.
