Project Summary

Socio-Spatial Governmentality in Costa Rica

City building strategy

A project-as-process, the plan for an eastern suburb of San José envisions the city in coexistence with its flora and fauna. The project overlays several networks of interventions.

Together, the discrete layers reconfigure the habitat of flora, fauna, and human beings as “citizens” of Curridabat.
