CONTEXT

Cerro Cora has a lack of educational development, 25% of children have no primary education, and 63% do not study because they has to work. Only 38% of the family receives garbage collection services, and 98% of the streets are still dirt, this makes it very difficult to access the various services to the community. It ranges from the perspective of solving a problem that affects not only a person or family, but that a group of people, so the idea itself seeks to vindicate human joint action, leaving aside the ego, or individual interests, in order to address the public interest as a priority. In this type of urban sites relationship with both social, economic and governmental context is of marginalization and exclusion, in most cases, are occupied lands, others granted but always virgins, without any basic service, this determined to conquer the urban development of the site should begin their initiative. One of the major difficulties is the lack of social cohesion, impermanence is great, by multiple factors, such as economic necessity, lack of response to basic needs, social expulsion, handling, etc.
