Proposals of Concrete Project Strategies: Planning the System of Open Spaces and Restructuring the Urban Territory



This final chapter, on the basis of the previous analysis, proposes project strategies that allow the planning of the system of open spaces and the restructuring of the urban territory, thus creating combined strategies for open and occupied spaces and reinforcing the relationship between planning and design. The objective is to maintain and develop the dynamics of the open spaces and relate open spaces to each other and structure the urban occupation. Thus, the project strategies are suggestions for the planning of open spaces and an opportunity to restructure the territory, and involve the following.
