Summary: This document focuses on investigating the theories and practices of urban production in the contemporary city, approaching the actions and the spatialized micro narratives as alternatives or resistances, contrasting them to the hegemonic macro-political model of city production; understanding them with constituents of the practice of anyone’s right to make city. This study follows up these micro political movements, seeking to address the diversity and the narratives of the city formation, from a perspective of subjective construction of the urban space, according to Guattari’s knowledge. It is used, for this purpose, the mapping proposed by Deleuze and Guattari, opposed to the hegemonic model of capitalism, which sets limits to homogenize the city production from technocracy, financier neoliberal ideology and from the star system hegemony. This study seeks to incorporate and extend the concept of the "right to the city" to “anyone’s right to make city". The “any” is a powerful part, which aims and makes the city daily. This other production of "making the city" does not fit in that reduction in which it is granted by normativity of real politics, by the current representative democracy, nor the invisibility that its users and minority or smaller agents are relegated. It is necessary to give visibility to micro political narratives of "anyone to make city" so that new knowledge of these movements can be produced and face the fields of architecture and urbanism. From this perspective, the objective political narratives of Célula EMAU and of Fórum Bem Maior, in the city of Vitoria, ES. For this purpose, we try to identify, within the shared experiences of these groups, micro political practices that contribute to the subjective (re)construction of urban space, in its various scales and the social, geographical, economic and cultural dynamics. So we can mainly understand the production of urban space in a broad way, predicting the participation of any individual or collective, without extinguishing or putting aside the architect’s role, but repositioning the architect-urbanist in front of narratives and micropolitical actions of the contemporary city production.

Key words: right to the city, urban space, cartography, architecture and urbanism
