While Aldo Rossi's contribution to recent architecture is often evaluated in ideological terms, this paper holds that in the specific context of Colombia this contribution has issued in a series of historiographical considerations, which are best assessed in methodological terms. After reviewing several different stages in the development of recent architectural historiography in Colombia, the paper focuses on a recent heuristic approach to architectural history, and Aldo Rossi's influence in its development.
