Abstract

Chihuahua city is examined historically and in the present to analyze its urban morphology and cultural landscape. Based on a landuse survey map compiled in 1992, the present study delimits and interprets the city's subregions, including commercial, industrial, and residential areas. Chihuahua was a distinctive regional capital of northern Mexico during the 19th century. Nevertheless, a new urban morphology and the recent changes in the city's cultural landscapes suggest that Chihuahua is being reshaped by forces similar to those effecting other rapidly growing north-Mexican cities. -Authors
