Mar Loren* : Coastal-Graphies. Touristic territories as a system of differences.
Coastal-graphies analyses the coastal transformation on the European Southern Coast as a contemporary phenomenon of critical importance. Its aim is to establish an alternative vision of this territory: given its outstanding geography and climate, mass tourism in Spain started on the Mediterranean Andalusian coast, specifically on the Costa del Sol. These circumstances led to a process of accelerated urban development driven by aggressive speculation throughout the second half of the 20th century. At the beginning of the 21st century this coast constitutes a conurbation spanning more than 100 kilometers. The complexity of this coastal territory has resulted in the predominance of a global analysis: a consolidated built area, an infinite succession of similar touristic resorts whose scale and continuity have resulted in a homogeneous, topological vision. The research proposes to transcend this predominant approach with a micro‐analysis of the coast that presents diversity as a value. The methodology combines the historical, critical analysis with an intense on-site work and subsequent elaboration of cartographies and diagrams. The aim is thus to present the phenomenon as a system of differences: a set of diverse ways of occupying the territory, producing nuances in its development, asymmetries in its interpretation, chronological and formal differences in its colonization.
