Abstract
Buenos Aires, Formless: Transformation and Fragmentation in the Urban Sphere, 1989-2002

This work traces the transformations in the urban sphere of Buenos Aires, beginning with the election of President Carlos Menem in 1989 and culminating with the political and economic crisis of 2001 and 2002. By focusing on several specific transformations in the urban terrain-the renovation of Puerto Madero, the growth of shopping malls, the expansion of gated communities in the periphery, the popular insurrections of the crisis, and the informal trash recyclers that infiltrated the urban center in its aftermath-this work evidences the physical alterations that accompanied the period's incomplete consolidation of a hegemonic order, this order's subsequent rupture, and the formlessness that characterized the city in the wake of the most dire crisis in Argentine history.
