With the work entitled “Residential quality and conditions of productivity in social housing promoted by the private sector. Toluca Metropolitan Zone, 2001-2011”, Carolina Inés Pedrotti Bruno, an academic of the Faculty of Architecture and Design of the Autonomous University of the State of Mexico, obtained first place in the Doctorate Thesis category of the “International Prize for Investigative Thesis 2015. Housing and Livability, a regional perspective. INFONAVIT-UNAM”.

The academic from the Bachelor in Administration and Promotion of Urban Works, in the subjects Urban Ground and Housing, detailed that a total of 90 works competed for the prize, including 67 masters thesis as well as 23 doctorate thesis, with participants from Mexico, Spain, France and Latin American countries. The prize was organized by the National Housing Fund Institute (INFONAVIT), in collaboration with University Program for City Studies (PUEC) from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).

In this context, the thesis of Pedrotti Bruno, who won a trophy and the publication of her work by the PUEC, was elected for its originality, pertinence, the relevance of the theme and the academic quality.

Pedrotti Bruno explained that her thesis focuses on the theme of urban ensembles in the metropolitan zone of Toluca, reviews the residential quality of the housing and its surroundings, narrates the procedure for the authorization, follow-up and municipalization of the ensembles and, in other words, what is done in terms of management of housing policy.

It attempts, she said, to portray all the housing policy of the state to observe it from a critical standpoint; it underlines as its successes, such as that it seeks to work in an interdisciplinary manner, but also has to do with urban development and housing in the state.

Among the mistakes, states Carolina Inés Pedrotti Bruno, is all that has to do with a strong support to the private real estate sector, and therefore, its logics of behavior that often go against social interest, which should at all times orient the housing policy.
