WHO DESIGNS TERRITORIES (Alejandro Meitin)

Analyzing the conception and purposes of territorial division, Who Designs Territories? explores the transformation of land use in South America, particularly as a result of the infrastructure building campaign of the Initiative for the Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America (IIRSA), which connects the economies of South America through transportation, energy, and communication projects.

The Integration of the Regional Infrastructure of South America (IIRSA) campaign is a transnational initiative that creates new territories throughout South America based on a new infrastructure network for the continent, including roads, waterways, ports, and energy and communications interconnections to increase exports of commodities such as soybeans and other grains. In response to this campaign, the video shows the equipment used for industrial export systems and questions who designs territories and for whom are they designed.
