  • Summary: The terms 'sensitive city' refer to a different optics from confronting the analysis, understanding and configuration of urban space. The article aims to study the factors that cause this change in the perception of the urban with direct consequences in the way of acting on urban space. These factors have to do, on the one hand, with certain manifestations of art, on the other, with sociological and urban studies that move towards the field of anthropology, ethnology and ecology and, fundamentally, the incidence of new information and communication technologies in the generation of social networks and proactive citizenship. The last part of the article is devoted to emerging types of informal spaces, alternative uses of public space and citizen participation. From these new situations given it is intended to promote critical thinking about new expanding practices and their possible points of convergence with new ways of proceeding from the point of view of both politics and the profession of urbanism architecture at the current social and economic situation.
  • Keywords: Networks, participation, alternative spaces, crises, sustainability.
  • Abstract: In this article we have used the concept of 'sensitive city' to make reference to a different perspective to deal with the analysis, understanding and proper configuration of urban spaces. The article aims to study the factors causing this change in the perception of urban life that has direct consequences on how to intervene in the urban space. These factors have to do, on the one hand, with certain forms of art, on the other, with sociological and urban stud- ies that are close to the fields of anthropology, ethnology and ecology, but mainly, with the impact of new informa- tion and communication technologies in a generation of social networks and proactive citizenship. The last part of the article is dedicated to the emerging types of informal spaces, and the alternative uses of public space and citizen participation. From these new given situations we try to promote a critical thinking about these expanding new practices and their possible points of convergence with new ways to proceed from the point of view of both politics and the profession of urbanism and architecture in the current social and economic situation.
  • Key words: Networks, participation, alternative spaces, crisis, sustainability.
