Through this thesis I have done an investigation on the city of Buenaventura in the Colombian Pacific region, and the factors that compose it, taking into account that it occurs in a context of poverty and scarcity. The response that the inhabitants have given to the problems they have faced over the years is also analyzed, providing solutions to living, through informality, vernacular architecture, and preserving their cultural traditions in the way of living, coexisting, and live. But, in particular, the relationship between the city and the sea is analyzed, since the water element is of vital importance in the formation of the city and in the way of living. A socio-spatial analysis of the city and the relationship that it and the citizens have with the sea was made, the latter has a fundamental role in living in Buenaventura, both culturally, as well as socially and economically; followed by the characteristics and problems faced by the communities at the general level of the community. Additionally, an analysis was carried out on the way of living and the subsidiary organization in the houses, the characteristics of these according to the place of implantation, because, as mentioned, the city of Buenaventura has an ambiguity in its formation, aqueous and terrestrial. Finally, after carrying out an analysis in the case of urban design study, a proposal is proposed that responds to the characteristics of the city and its inhabitants, proposing aqueous, semi-terrestrial, and terrestrial spaces, responding to the socio-cultural and economic needs of the region.
