Resumo da publicação

This paper discusses the results of an early case of the application of the concept of Geodesign in Brazil. Geodesign is a new multi-disciplinary approach to spatial planning and design that is characterized by the use of GIS methods and tools. In this study, the Geodesign approach is applied - focusing on its analytical part – in two neighbor-hoods in Pampulha, Belo Horizonte, Brazil, aiming at evaluating their urban quality. The case study was chosen for the integrated capability of balancing urban transformation and preservation of environmental characteristics of the area. In order to evaluate their evolution dynamics a novelty multi-criteria analytical approach was applied to explore which implications spatial phenomena have on the urban quality level and transformation risk in the area. The results of the study highlight the role of knowledge as an essential starting point for urban interventions, in order to inform the design by the specifi c characteristics of the area and the needs of the citizens.
