The Inter-American Center for Housing and Planning (CINVA), based in Bogotá, was created in 1952 with the aim of promoting an interdisciplinary debate on housing and planning in Latin America. This work seeks to understand the dimensions of CINVA's agency, having as a hypothesis the approximation between the rural house and the shantytown (favela) in the discussions promoted by the institution. During 20 years of existence, CINVA has promoted courses inside and outside Colombia, mobilizing a vast network of professionals and institutions from all over Latin America around its projects. Also aiming to understand the Brazilian participation in this context, the research focuses on three events held by CINVA on Brazil: the Regional Course of Rural Housing in Viçosa, 1958; the Regional Course on Rural Housing in Pernambuco, 1965; and the Housing Course within the Urban Context in Rio de Janeiro, 1969. The work proposes the investigation of how the debate around the agrarian and urban issue took place, within an integrated planning project proposed by CINVA and debated by Latin professionals Americans through their courses.
