DESCRIPTION – Caracas: Modernity
In the transition from romanticism to positivism in the twentieth century, modernization continues in the city of Caracas. The model ceased to be Paris, which we replaced with New York.
Caracas is filling up with cars, traffic is starting to be a problem and the city is growing as its population rises uncontrollably in the hands of a new middle class emerging from the oil business. For the first time we speak of urbanism, from the scientific point of view, and towards 1930 begins our era of great urban plans.
With the monumental plan as the main exponent in the historic center In the twentieth century, many works were built in the center, such as the Centro Simón Bolívar Towers, Plaza Caracas, the headquarters of the Central Bank, the Juan Pedro López Square and the Panteón Boulevard. Once again, we will know these buildings from the public spaces they build.
