The Regulation of the Past in Habana Vieja

Constitutional Modernism

This chapter provides an overview of the comprehensive scope of the Plan Piloto de la Habana. The Plan Piloto de la Habana presumed the unification of the city at some level above the existing municipalities. It also presumed the consolidation of the JNP over rival agencies or interests. The chapter also provides information about Habana Vieja, the appellation that referred to the area of the city that had been contained within fortified walls. It discusses that the proposal for Habana Vieja was of a different degree—the seemingly total transformation of the original core of the city to accord with the norms of the Plan Piloto. Additionally, the proposal shared premises with the program of urban renewal that developed in the United States.
