Abstract

This chapter will examine the cartographic representations of Villa Celina, an area located in the south-western suburbs of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and in particular the mapping of three neighbourhoods of social housing built in 1958-62: Barrio Vicente López y Planes, Barrio Urquiza and Barrio Sarmiento. Since these neighbourhoods were built, their inclusion in the maps of the area has often been partial or incomplete, becoming more exhaustive only in recent urban charts. While it is inherent to maps to be limited in the extent of detail they can represent, in the case of the south-western suburbs the incompleteness of the representation appears to be particularly acute. The role that Barrio Vicente López y Planes, Barrio Urquiza and Barrio Sarmiento (BVLP/U/S from now on) and their inhabitants occupied in twentieth-century Argentine society will be explored in relation to the mapping of Villa Celina in order to shed some light on the limitations of these cartographic representations.
