In Bogota, Colombia, delegations from nine Latin American countries, founded ALADI (Latin American Design Association). Above all, the founders of ALADI conceptualized Design within the field of technology as the most appropriate tool for the conquest of the industrial, economic and cultural autonomy of \'our peoples\'. The foundational discourse struggled to prevail during the 1980s, while the association began its strengthening amid the complications of the so-called \"lost decade.\" With certain successes and problems the initial scheme of the association comes to the 1990s, when it will change its meaning and power of convocation, just at a time when Latin America knows the cruder face of neoliberalism. From the study of documentary sources and interviews with the actors of the process, this research intends to determine the social conditions that explain the creation, operation and the change of ALADI between 1978 and 1995,being the footprint of a epistemology of a particular way of see design -until not taken into account- that is thought in Latin America, for Latin America.
