SALAZAR MARTINEZ, Bertha Lilia; RAMO DIAZ, Rodrigo; VAZQUEZ HONORATO, Luis Arturo  y  BENTES, María Dulce Picanço. The popular supply centers in the neoliberal city: the transformations of traditional markets, period 2013-2021. An. Investig. Arquit. [online]. 2022, vol.12, n.2, e304.  Epub 01-Dic-2022.

In tune with the processes of transformation of public space in contemporary cities, where actions linked to urban development, typical of neoliberalism, alter and distort the reality in which we find ourselves, this article addresses the current situation in 2013-2021 of popular supply centers, based on studies that reflect diverse perspectives and experiences of researchers.

The main objective of this work is to demonstrate the processes that afflict traditional markets in multiple contexts of the global space and to identify the common aspects that leave evidence od the implementation of set of strategies and solutions used to modify the structure and urban image, and that become convenient models for the commodification of cities as the only answer to urban problems, hiding the sociospatial inequalities, the expansion of poverty, exclusion and the urban violence that these generate.

The exploratory type research is based on a historical-comparative procedure, through which several cases located in different places are reviewed, where the processes of urban and architectural intervention have caused notorious effects, mainly in terms of symbolic, commercial and tourist gentrification. In this way, certain scopes of analysis corresponding to the diversity contexts: international, latin american and mexican, in order to clarify the existing situations.

In conclusion, the common situations in the analysis of these experiences and how they are shaped from neoliberal ideologies are evidenced. Based on the above, it is intended to reflect and rethink the processes of urban restructuring and reconversion of popular supply centers, particularly those cases in which negative impacts on social welfare occur.
