SIGUS: Special Interest Group in Urban Settlement
Malecon 2000

The Ecuador Workshop examined the impact of a planned waterfront redevelopment on the downtown of Guayaquil, with particular focus on the surrounding low income communities. Five areas were explored: adjacent hillside squatter communities, a faded artist's community, an abandoned market, large street vendor population, and inner city low income housing. Hosts were the Foundacion Malecon 2000 and the University of Guayaquil.
