LOPEZ-CARMONA, Juan-Alejandro  and  MOLINA-SALDARRIAGA, Mónica-Lucía. Aesthetic and urban analysis of Pasaje Cervantes: Simbolic connections for creative intervention proposals. Rev. Arquit. (Bogotá) [online]. 2022, vol.24, n.2, pp.61-71.  Epub Nov 25, 2022. ISSN 1657-0308.

The article presents the results of the research project conducted in 2018 at the Fundación Universitaria Bellas Artes de Medellín (FUBA, for its Spanish acronym), which aimed to strengthen the theoretical and conceptual bases to propose transformations of a physical, media, urban, artistic and communicative nature. The theme is defined by two interests: First, the recognition and activation of identity vectors to strengthen identity processes on the collective imaginary of the Pasaje Cervantes, in the center of the city. Second, to establish the historical, cultural, and contextual conditions susceptible to be exploited as design variables in the transformation processes of Medellín, from the analysis of symbolic and urban variables that allow recognizing the importance of studying the symbolic universe of urban spaces, within the exercise of urban planning and intervention. Finally, the aesthetic and semiotic reflections elaborated from the analysis of semiotic tables and maps of variables are presented.

Keywords : aesthetic; cultural identity; semiotics; urban analysis; urban design.
