Gestión urbana y arquitectura en el Buenos Aires posrevolucionario (1821-1835)

Fernando Aliatta


At the beginning of the '20, Buenos Aires produced a deep transformation of their political structures. This situation, characterized by the central government's disappearance and the consolidation of the States power, points out the opening of a characterized cycle, mainly, for the promulgation of a series of wide institutional reformations.

Based on the singularity and complexity of this political and institutional experience, our look goes towards an almost unexplored area: the city, the urban devices, the urban or architectural projects, the habitat; that is to say, the material structures that accompany the change that is definitively taking place. It is not only the objective of our effort to supplement or to enlarge the knowledge in relation to the urban history, but verifying something that the historiography has not denied, but minimized: the existence of an urban transformation project that accompanies this institutional metamorphosis, and to demonstrate, once analyzed this project, the interrelations that can exist between the mutations of the physical city and the modifications of the political space.
