Abstract

AGUILA, María José  and  PRADA TRIGO, José. URBAN GROWTH AND SOCIOESPATIAL SEGREGATION IN VALDIVIA. Urbano (Concepc.) [online]. 2020, vol.23, n.42, pp.32-43. ISSN 0717-3997.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22320/07183607.2020.23.42.03.

This article analyzes and interprets recent urban growth and socio-spatial segregation trends in the city of Valdivia (Chile), relating them, at the same time, to the progress of the real estate market. Despite being a medium-sized city, with moderate growth and good quality of life indicators, it would seem to be reproducing similar logics as other larger cities. For this reason, a methodology that combines statistical data with in-depth interviews with key players is applied and a restriction matrix that summarizes existing segregation spatially and by components is made. As a result, this study is able to identify the sectors with the highest and lowest real estate growth, considering both their forms and typologies; as well as the perception about existing segregation phenomena in Valdivia. In this way, alongside an analysis that places emphasis on smaller, less dynamic cities, a methodological contribution would be generated that could be applied to other case studies.

Keywords : Urban growth; real estate; socio-spatial segregation; Valdivia.
