Panoramic views on the 23 de Enero housing zone in Caracas, Venezuela, revolve around conversations of the inhabitants, architects and activists, who discuss the possibilities and limits of processes of appropriation of architecture and of political structures: How was housing and the city modernistically planned and created in the 1950s? How were parts of these "megastructures" appropriated? And how has this appropriation impacted on life here so far? What potential does the new constitution hold for the re-appropriation of urban terrain and housing?
