In tourism as well as in daily life, we identify our reference zones on the city by the emotional or historic relevance we gave them trough time.

But, what could happen if an arbitrary template force us to rethink the hole city outside our own subjectivity? Could we allow the possibility of new structures growing and make the citizens revalue their own environment?

Our project it´s set to transmit the different views of the community there may be in the city. For that, we want to create a map that nourish with the collaboration of users, through an online and mobil app with a friendly interface. There´s a number of trips thought with a different view. We want every person to achieve that abstraction and to reflect it from a picture to share with others. With social media and devices, we can give thousand of identities to our community and our city. It is between everybody´s reach to show what we see and probably not that many people notice, even going trough the same places every day.

- A new urban identity: Archaeography

As a democratic exercise, we allow ourselves to play with new identities to achieve a new Archaeograpy, a map of a new city that in it´s base it´s the same, but is new at the same time. That´s why this project has as finality to set a new view of the LatAm cities, not only focused in the eye of the neighbour who will provide his own image, but also in the great variety of texts and books that tell of a geography nowadays not express in a visual support. this platform will, in a future, able to create new social imaginary of a same place.

- How we are going to do it?

The site will have several instance while developing that will reflect on the public site. These instances will be of inner production, but our premium collaborators will be able to contribute and participate of the project evolution. For those who contribute, there will be exclusive invitations for private launchings, to start using this platform before anyone else. The time of publication of the complete platform at LatAm level will be 12 weeks after the actual collection of money.

- Who we are.

Intangibles Urbanos it´s a research project born at the Instituto Superior de Urbanismo (UBA-SeCyT 2008-2010 (A006), Proyectos Bienales UBA-SeCyT; resolución Nº  573/08 Secretaría de Ciencia y Técnica / UBA). The same was arise by te need of represent the social behaviour regarding urban infrastructure. As define by Rafael E. J. Iglesia in his text "Imaginarios Urbanos", this concept seeks to educate the citizen to have a global view of his environment. Like this, the environment, along with the constant movement of the population, transforms a city into a living organism that exceed geopolitic limits.
