During the second half of the nineteenth century and early twentieth century, the intense industrialization process resulted in a number of changes in the organization of space through technical and aesthetic innovations associated with the emerging urban-industrial reality. In many parts of Europe and America as a result of cultural and technological developments, there was a change in ways of thinking about architecture, searching for new concepts and practices that best fit the scenario of the industrial city. This panorama of transformations and formal and aesthetic experimentation joined in architecture, among other things, dissemination of functionalist attitudes and Art Nouveau. The research proposes the study of the impacts produced by these trends in architecture, focusing on the production of the French architect Victor Dubugras (1868 - 1933) in Brazil and in particular your project to the railway station Mairinque (SP), which It will be investigated in terms of architectural design, program, arrangement of internal spaces, deployment and detailing.
