Quito is a cosmopolitan city, a complex city with complex problems. This IQP will try to suggest an alternative to the popular settlement problem, one of its principle problems. The alternative, to present urban expansion, discussed in this project develops a satellite city and supporting measures, such as implementing a complete infrastructure and basic services, to increase the quality of life of the future settlers. To perform this it must be done a compressive analysis of the city, its problems and it[s] components. Also an in-dept[h] analysis of the popular settlements must be done.
