AbstractThe sustainability deficit in social, economic, and environmental aspects is very evident in Peru; however, there are efforts to reduce waste and emissions and increase recycling. Their main goal is to improve the quality of life for residents through open spaces, which help address air pollution, provide natural oxygen, and allow residents to breathe fresh air instead of the smell of the street and loud car noise. The San Juan de Lurigancho district is one region in Peru that lacks green space. Several methods can solve this problem by getting to know former residents from SJL and letting them know about sustainability and its benefits. This research proposes an ideal urban design incorporating open spaces and green infrastructure. By learning from successful cases and seeing the benefits of green infrastructure, policymakers can design successful green spaces in San Juan de Lurigancho, dramatically improving residents’ quality of life.
