There's a large architectural production in Latin America. A very singular production which is the result of all local territorial, climate and cultural characteristics together with those ones inherited from the Hispanic and Portuguese culture during the colonization. What used to be a simple copy or a reinterpretation of the European architecture became unique and able to express both the differences and the identity of each country in Latin America. Nevertheless, this is not a widespread topic in Brazil yet.Considering the importance of studying and knowing the architecture that builds our history, this research intends to put in evidence the singularities and similarities that exist in the Argentinean and Brazilian architectural production focusing in Cordoba and São Paulo's residences from the 1980s onwards.This result is going to be achieved comparing these projects, starting with two well-known studios in Cordoba and various projects throughout São Paulo, establishing then their use of space, design and the interaction with their culture and other urban conditions.
