The student will work on developing research on the case studies - hotspots - defined within the scope of the Year 3 objectives in the Territorialities, Spatialities and Innovation in Environmental Governance Subproject. The objective is based on surveys and analysis of data and information on the theme of what is called soft spaces and fuzzy boundaries, especially in the international literature that deals with the field of planning, as it is a theme that is still emerging in Brazil. For this purpose, it will examine the theoretical foundations of this approach and its application; deepen the collection of evidence of this type of spatial arrangement and planning and governance in the São Paulo macro-metropolis (MMP).
