Thesis
There are some relevant aspects in cycling mobility that still remain relatively underexplored, such as its spatial dimension, which is the main focus of interest of this research. This thesis essentially explores cycling mobility across the city, and its main objective is to collect, visualise, analyse and model cyclists’ routes and the distributi...

METROCREATIVA. Revisitando la ciudad creativa en tiempos de crisis: actores, factores y estrategias La creciente importancia que en la última década se concede a la inserción de las ciudades europeas en la sociedad del conocimiento ha difundido un discurso en el que conceptos como creatividad e innovación se convierten en claves para el desarrollo urbano. La crisis desatada en 2007 puso en cuestión las estrategias desarrolladas, marcadas por su orientación hacia la regeneración urbana, los megaproyectos y la inversión en infraestructuras tecnológicas para atraer a las “clases creativas” globales. No obstante, adquieren visibilidad toda una serie de colectivos sociales que, utilizando la creatividad y la cultura como medio, contribuyen al desarrollo urbano mediante prácticas alternativas que confrontan el discurso neoliberal y sus impactos territoriales y promueven la cohesión social. Así, en este proyecto se defiende la necesidad de revisar las nociones de creatividad e innovación desde una concepción del desarrollo superadora de la mera referencia a la competitividad urbana. Se considera que ese nuevo escenario ofrece una inmejorable oportunidad para repensar los argumentos teóricos de un esquema conceptual todavía difuso, para revisar las estrategias de los gobiernos locales y reinterpretar el papel que en las mismas han jugado y podrían jugar todo un conjunto de actores marginados de las redes de gobernanza promotoras de las ciudades creativas. Un aspecto clave de ese cometido es la consideración de nuevas realidades del “Sur Global” que, como las latinoamericanas no han sido consideradas por la literatura internacional. El objetivo general de este proyecto consiste en analizar la evolución de las estrategias públicas e iniciativas privadas de creatividad urbana y sus estructuras de gobernanza desde la crisis económica de 2007 desde una perspectiva comparativa transnacional en tres regiones metropolitanas –Madrid, Buenos Aires y México-.
