The goal of this task is to develop team research in order to produce both knowledge and materials that can help develop criteria for intervention. The aim is to understand how the area is; how it works; the process of evolution that made it like that; to identify what have been the driving forces; who have been the actors directing urban growth; what the goals were; and what mechanisms were implemented to direct this evolution. This phase will culminate in a collective brainstorming session where each team’s findings will be shared. A collective S.W.O.T. analysis will be produced as a conclusion.
