Resumen

120

En este artículo se examina el mundo de la construcción especulativa del Londres de finales del siglo XVII, un contexto que suele relacionarse con el nacimiento de la cultura inmobiliaria moderna. Se revisa también la literatura existente sobre el tema y se identifican las condiciones sociales y económicas que concurrieron para producir los nuevos paradigmas de la construcción especulativa, así como los agentes e instrumentos que ayudaron a consolidar ciertos códigos. La construcción no dependía tanto del diseño o la autoría proyectual que suele asociarse a la figura del arquitecto, sino de una miríada de negociaciones conflictivas y bastante poco sistematizadas entre todos los intervinientes, ya fueran constructores, propietarios del suelo, inversores o arrendatarios. El texto profundiza en estos paradigmas y presta especial atención a un género de publicaciones operativas que, a pesar de no haber recibido la atención que merecen, tuvieron como principal vocación organizar y regular las competencias y las relaciones entre los distintos profesionales de este sector empresarial. Por último, este artículo defiende que, para encontrar el sentido a nuestra cultura edificatoria capitalista, deberíamos reconsiderar las problemáticas circunstancias que la produjeron, así como los principios que sirvieron de base para normalizarlas.
