SANCHEZ RUIZ, Gerardo G. La escuela alemana de la planeación moderna de ciudades: Principios e influencia en México. Región y sociedad [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.38, pp.77-104. ISSN 1870-3925.

Modern city planning emerged in the mid-nineteenth century within a context of problems generated by industrialization in the cities. Even though this discipline was manifest in different ways in developed countries, as time elapsed, and thanks to the theoretical and practical work of German engineers and architects, it acquired its own structure, objectives and methodologies. Ultimately, these professionals created a school of thought that spread to other countries, laying the foundations of the movement called modern city planning, which was espoused by those who directed the first planning tasks in Mexican cities in the early twentieth century. Unfortunately, urbanism studies barely or only tangentially discuss that origin, despite the recognition of these contributions given at that time by European, North American and Mexican professionals.

Keywords : industrialization; modern city planning; theory; history; modernity; omissions.
