During the years of 1950 and 1960, the Faculty of Architecture and Urban Planning of Sao Paulo (FAU-USP) had been a center of ethics and esthetics principles, guided by the master João Batista Vilanova Artigas, architect and urban planner known as a diffuser, an important professor and great leader of the modern movement in Brazil. The architect Jorge Caron (1936/2000) represented the second generation of the modern architect idealized by this group from FAU-USP. He worked as an architect and urban planner, educator, landscape worker, designer, scenographist, movie director and cultural producer. He was indoubtly an important professional, having worked intensely for developing a national culture. In this work, we analyze Jorge Caron professional carrier based on the recovery and the systematic study of his proposals. We identify the interlocutors, the conflicts and dialogs established in this context, aiming to reveal the choices and strategies also translated in his architecture.
