As part of the artistic documentation was analyzed, the objective is now to analyze the technical documentation, in this sense, the main objective is the mapping, collection and analysis of the technical writings of planners and architects related to urban remodeling and the formation of condominiums and closed neighborhoods , as well as the legislation referring to these urban remodeling's, and the historical context of their formations under the impact of neoliberal policies implemented in the country. For this purpose, nine institutions were previously selected, including research centers and libraries in Buenos Aires and La Plata, crossing documentation that permeates technical and artistic aspects, which will also be revised.
