de la balsa que me transporta
dejo, primero, las huellas
de mis pantuflas

Una colcha de retazos de paradigmas, expresados materialmente en fragmentos formales y espaciales distintos y agregados en diferentes momentos de su historia, sería un adecuado símil de su ser.

EL PENSAMIENTO LATINOAMERICANO SOBRE EL PAISAJE DE LA CIUDAD

This paper aims at the analysis and deconstruction of a significant array of ideas about urban landscape borne and developed over the last 150 years. From their writings and professional works, some essential authors’ introspections are presented. Especially: Camilo Sitte, Gordon Cullen, Kevin Lynch, Rob and Leon Krier. Their prescriptive thinking gave birth to a set of guidelines, directives and recommendations for the design of cities. This work intends to present a brief history of thoughts about urban issues with a critique of their possible influences and impacts on the current sustainability model of contemporary cities.
