Participatory Mapping

Working in collaboration with the neighborhood of Las Flores, Barranquilla, Colombia, ongoing trips have resulted in participatory mapping of the community features and areas of concern that need to be addressed.  The website is under construction. Please stay tuned to for updates.





The informal city can seem incomprehensible as it is largely a city conceived in motion—a three-dimensional construct of incremental development. Informal cities are compact with clearly delineated boundaries (either natural or manmade) and with very few points of entry. The physical patterns are organic and irregular, adapting and developing over time as the needs and circumstances of the community change. Their built fabric is denser than that of the formal city, with a complex network of small pedestrian-scaled streets and relatively few public open spaces. While methods of construction are continuously evolving from less permanent materials to more permanent materials, the urban pattern and the subdivision of land is remarkably resilient. Vernacularology observes, studies, and documents the ordinary and mundane artefacts characteristic of these urban environments.  Read more at
