Bitácora Urbano Territorial

Print version ISSN 0124-7913


BIRCHE, Mariana  and  JENSEN, Karina. Landscape integration in urban growth. Transformations in the periphery of La Plata. Bitácora Urbano Territorial [online]. 2019, vol.29, n.3, pp.145-154. ISSN 0124-7913.

The present work proposes to study and spatialize different degrees of landscape integration in the periphery of the northwest axis of the city of La Plata, Argentina. It is intended to verify that the current urban configuration, the result of the growth of the sector in recent decades, does not contribute to achieve an integration of the territory as a landscape. Thus, the methodological approach presents two main instances: the first combines the survey of the structure and urban configuration with land uses and the level of consolidation of the urban fabric. The second incorporates landscape issues and determines the level of landscape integration based on the composition of the different urban pieces in one of the sectors with the greatest growth of the district.

Keywords : landscape; landscape integration; urban growth; La Plata.
