Abstract

Between 1900 and 1950, the Latin American cities have received cultural influences from Europe. The main cities of South America, in those years, were suffering from severe alterations and environmental changes, and the social contrasts were many strong. The Latin American city had lost its cultural identity and, at the same time, the city was trying to acquire a new image. In this complex cultural context advances the Austrian city planner Karl Brunner (1887-1960). Brunner had studied in Vienna and in 1929 he had started working in Chile and then in 1933 in Colombia. Brunner works 20 years of his life in Latin America where he left important works and contributions. This paper intends to analyze the work of Karl H. Brunner for the development plan of Bogotá’s city (1933-1938) and the introduction of organic planning.
