BRAZILIAN NATURAL GAS AND THE CONVERGENCE WITH ASCHER’S NEOURBANISM
The writings reflect on the role played by natural gas as a vector of socioeconomic development in Santa Catarina, a state in the southern region of Brazil. The main theoretical framework is supported by François Ascher’s concept of neo-urbanism and the method used was bibliographic and documentary research, with an empirical approach to the theme of natural gas in association with modern urbanism. The conclusion considers that natural gas is associated with the various characteristics of neo-urbanism and can be classified, in the case of Santa Catarina, as a modern phenomenon associated with urban reality and the prevailing mode of production.
