This paper aims at presenting the importance and need for smart urban mobility to promote an improvement of everyone´s life quality, and a portray of smart mobility worldly scenery, which entirely impacts the cities´ constructed environment, so as so that its management should be efficient and fitting within adequate mobility plans and sustainability. The method used initiates at bibliographic review, followed by some smart cities´ analysis. Next, a qualitative and descriptive study is developed with examples of the main smart urban transportation means present in the world and how countries should fit themselves to the construction of smart cities, promoting life quality to people and adequate surveillance of sustainable development. In Brazil, all cities with more than twenty thousand inhabitants must have an urban mobility plan up till 2022 or 2023, which is equivalent to more than 30% of the country´s cities. According to the United Nations, 68% of the world population will live in urban centers until 2050. Therefore, make the cities smart is primordial, including quality mobility, that needs all people´s involvement, besides government, companies and universities for a successful construction and solidification. </p> 2020-02-06T00:00:00-08:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Revista Nacional de Gerenciamento de Cidades Social interest housing projects implemented by BNH in the 1980s in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul 2021-08-05T12:10:33-07:00 Kelly Cristina Hokama Ademir Kleber Morbeck Oliveira Rosemary Matias <p>The conditions that existed in 1964 allowed the foundation of the Housing Finance System and the National Housing Bank (BNH), which led to the creation of large social housing projects the Housing Companies (COHABs). These projects were implemented to reduce the pressure for housing on the classes with lower purchasing power. This article aims to evaluate housing projects of social interest implemented in the 1980s through the BNH in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, analysing their implementation and consequences. The document analysis method was used on data characterising the occupied areas. The BNH action was significant due to the number of housing units delivered in the period, which benefitted 13,028 families, 58,626 people. The model followed considerably reduced the housing deficit, but also led to the formation of urban voids; this was related to the fact that the BNH is a central decision-making body at the federal level. Housing construction used areas in regions that were unattractive for the formal real estate market, in places far from the centre, which were often located on the banks of streams, outside the urban perimeter. This situation made it difficult for the population to access service, mobility, supply, and urban facility networks. At the end of the period evaluated, the need to improve public policies aimed at social housing became evident, in future avoiding some mistakes made in the implementation of housing projects in the city.</p> 2022-03-27T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Revista Nacional de Gerenciamento de Cidades Development of indicators to assess waste management sustainability at construction sites in the city of Recife, Brazil 2021-08-03T01:27:41-07:00 Walberlena Maria Lucena da Fonsêca Eduardo Antônio Maia Lins Diogo Henrique Fernandes da Paz Daniele de Castro Pessoa Melo Alessandra Lee Barbosa Firmo <p>Civil construction activities promote a considerable increase in waste generation which negatively impacts the environment. Although there are sustainable technologies and practices for reusing these wastes, the disposal and inappropriate destination of these wastes still prevails. Faced with this problem, this article presents a development of indicators to assess sustainability at construction sites. Thus, 30 sustainability indicators related to solid waste management at construction sites were prepared, divided into six matrices, and related to construction management, documentation control, waste segregation and initial conditioning, waste transport and final conditioning, final destination and hazardous waste management, as based on CONAMA Resolution no. 307/2002. The indicators composed six sub-indices to enable assessing sustainability and the composition of a final sustainability index. The diagnosis of the result by group of indicators shows that the focus on waste transport and final conditioning obtained the highest sustainability degree by the projects studied, while the lowest degree of sustainability presented by the projects was observed in the construction waste segregation and initial conditioning matrix.</p> 2022-03-27T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Revista Nacional de Gerenciamento de Cidades Botanical Gardens in the city of São Paulo at the beginning of the 20th century 2022-05-12T18:03:12-07:00 Jessica Rodrigues Tiseo Marta Enokibara <p>At the beginning of the 20th century, the city of São Paulo had three Hortos: the "Horto de São Paulo", better known as Horto da Cantareira, created in 1896 by Alberto Löfgren; the Horto do Museu Paulista, which was first planted in 1898 by the Museum's director, Hermann von Ihering; and the Horto Oswaldo Cruz, created in 1917 by the botanist Frederico Carlos Hoehne. All of them no longer exist with their original functions, but they preserve, in their spaces, some built and plant elements that are testimonies of the creation of these places. In this context, this article aims to make a brief history of these gardens, their insertions in maps of the time, the investigation of the fate they had and some components that preserve their memory today. Methodologically, the research used textual, cartographic and iconographic references present in primary documents, articles, theses and dissertations, as well as in the sites that house these places, in order to assess the objectives to be achieved. Through the material collected, it was possible to visualize and understand the locations of the mentioned gardens, their current uses and remaining elements.</p> 2022-05-12T00:00:00-07:00 Copyright (c) 2022
