Ebenezer Howard’s idea of the garden-city and its historical-cultural context in Europe and Latin America
This text analyses how the English urban and cultural heritage influenced the European and Latin American world of the 20th century, marked by the industrial revolution, in the context of the creation of new urban centres. The main question was how Ebenezer Howard’s idea of the garden city developed in Latin America and Europe. This article aims to analyse the historical and cultural context of their implementation in developed and developing countries. The research also aims to determine to how well this vision, described as utopian, has been realised in the studied cities, considered to be the most accurate realisations of Howard’s concept in both Europe and Latin America.
