Abstract | Full Text

The call in 1930 for a contest to draft the plan for expansion and interior reform of Ceuta, a medium Spanish city on the African continent, allows us to analyze the tools used by Spanish urban planners in a singular moment are the dawn of the functional city. The confluence in this contest of three proposals by the prominent urban architects César Cort, Pedro Muguruza and Gaspar Blein, allows us to know the advances and setbacks of Spanish urbanism, and its permeability to the new ideas as result of the of the international networks of urbanism influence.
