Understanding and Representing Urban Heterogeneity : The Case of Waste Collection in São Paulo

Abstract

How is it possible to take into account the architectural and urban complexity, which encompasses multiple issues, from technical ones to social or sensory ones, within an integrated research process? How is it possible to combine multiple disciplinary approaches (cultural, social, environmental, urban, and design) and scales (from the body one to the district or the city ones) with a single representation means? And finally, what kind of method can address these complex problems and however remaining “thrifty”? In this paper, we will describe a recent exploratory research work that intended to address all these issues at once. The main result consists in proposing an integrated methodology for analysis and representation. In our view, considering together these two domains is a way to take into account multiple research fields without having a more influential one, by keeping strong ties between field observation and results construction. In the end, graphic representation appears to be not only a means (for describing, understanding, planning and so on), but also a proper result to the architectural and urban research realm.
