UrbSocioInfrastructure = is an attempt to amalgamate essential structural parameters of current and future design disciplines.  World’s mega cities constantly experience impressive fluctuations.  Their political, economic order create dramatic shifts within Earth’s ecosystem jeopardizing our existence and those of other animal/plant species.  Developing nations now follow unsustainable practices, thus a comprehensive global measure is now more difficult to attain. Who is to blame? Only ourselves but until when?  It is time to engage what for decades we have avoided of which now is the inevitable and all lies within the Urban, the Social, and their Infrastructural characteristics.  My progressive learning from one of the impoverished precincts of Caracas along the diverse international professional engagement until the graduate studies at Columbia University, have given me the capacity and tenacity to actively engage this critical issue but above all to entice others to follow.
