Abstract

In the current context of the city, the urban growth and reading of various scales and shapes of your organization, not a single model, allows you to translate the idea of post-industrial city, one where the-productive function seems to have lost importance to the detriment of commercial or leisure. The instability is manifested in contexts of uncertainty, questioning planning and urban design.Based on an interdisciplinary reading focus reflection on the transition between urban models, as moments of reconstruction of urban identities. Through the concepts of landscape system infrastructure and public space, we look at two examples of post-industrial transition: the South Bank of the Tejo in the Lisbon Metropolitan area and the project 22 @ Barcelona, industrial Poblenou district.Urban diversity is a strategic factor to keep open several possibilities in undefined moments of transition. So, we have a working hypothesis: the overlapping processing cycles (each emerging and other decadent) keeping the diversity of its elements may result in greater adaptability of the city, conserving diverse identities and productive capacities, in a new context in which the indetermination prevails on predictability.
