Pani’s plan regulador for Matamoros was consistent with the modernist planning logic of Nueva Ciudad Guerrero. It aimed to transform the edges of a 19th-century Creole city into an exemplar of modernization reflecting the best practices of Mexico’s leading architects and technocrats and, implicitly, the social vision of the PRI.
