the ports in the context of technical means

In the contemporaneity, some spaces acquire a functional purpose and play an important role in the globalization’s architecture. Among them we can emphasize the ports, which constitute themselves in links, between different points of the earth and extensive hinterlands, depending on their connectivity. This importance is amplified according as these spaces incorporate more and more a rationality ruled by the scientific technical method, that gives them a different aspect of what were the ports in the past, as well as leads to an ambiance permeated by hegemonic logics and tries to answer to them satisfactorily. So, the new arrangements express the capitalism’s trajectory and its relationship with the technique in the visible aspect or in the norms and relationships established in these spaces.
