Infraestructura ferroviaria y ciudad: modalidades urbanísticas de resolución de sus vínculos en la historia urbana de Santa Fe

María Alejandra Saus


ENG: Recent theories add local color in the appropriation of ideas about the city. For this reason, it is possible to confirm
that Argentine Urbanism was made of successive transformations, forming an autonomous discipline around 1910.
Since then, it has become a homogeneous tradition, despite the different names under which it was known in the
twentieth century. Those denominations express legal forms of a discipline which has been nourished by the
knowledge of many sciences. However, history changes establish epistemological breaks, proof of that is the way
railway was incorporated into the city. If the nineteenth century embraces railway as a synonym of progress,
urbanism will segregate infrastructures in order to free the city from a clear obstacle. Due to its cultural and
historical value, railway reconversion has recently revealed again how these practices resolve the history dialogue
between infrastructure and the city, in different languages.
