Introduction The period from the mid-1970s to the end of the 20th century brought many scientific studies devoted to spatial structure in Latin American cities ( Wilhelmy, Borsdorf 1984, 1985 ). However, the peak period for research and analysis relating to cities there came in the first part of that period and was associated with the huge popularity then enjoyed by urban- and regional-planning concepts, that gained the support of CEPAL (the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean) and what was then its key institution in that field, responsible

investment ( Czerny 2014 ). The biggest cities in this region become hubs of development deepening the gap with surrounding territories. The process is present worldwide, as globalised world companies need to localise their physical infrastructure in a real place ‘even when the outputs are hypermobile’ ( Sassen 2005 : 35), but in Latin America the gap is especially striking. The very dynamic flow of immigrants was a result of their developing economies, and this factor determined the structure of many Latin-American cities, inducing the expansion of housing towards the
