COSTA, Camila. Developmentalism and Territory: Three Transport Infrastructures in Santa Fe (Argentina, 1957-1971) as Case Studies. Hist. Soc. [online]. 2021, n.40, pp.43-62.  Epub 08-Mar-2021. ISSN 0121-8417.

This study aims to recognize the elements that make up the notion of technological determinism and the power (in a political sense) of technologies in the transformation of a given area. Three major infrastructure projects are addressed, understood as technological artifacts, built in the 1960s, that consolidated the physiognomy of the corridor of National Route 168 -Santa Fe city, Argentina-. The hypothesis that guides the study assumes that infrastructures and their materiality have influenced the transformation of the territory that contains them, specifically in the Santa Fe-Paraná metropolitan area. The cases addressed -two bridges and a subfluvial tunnel- were analyzed through the recognition of their construction systems, architectural aspects -if any- and production conditions. Concrete as the predominant material turns out to be, not only the condition of possibility to experience the territory, but also, a constituent part of it. It is considered that the context of production of the works -developmental model- and the level of appropriation and assessment achieved, are fundamental aspects to understand the notion of technological determinism in these infrastructures.
