The article reconstructs spatial transformations occurring in the urban structure of Paris between the French Revolution and the Commune, relating them to the succession of re- gimes that govern the city and the country in the same period. The resulting interpretative model is applied to the spatial transformations that consolidate the urban axis of the Paseo de la Reforma in Mexico City vis-à-vis the succession of governments and regimes between the Segundo Imperio and the Porfirian dictatorship. The analysis is then extended to the country’s territory evolving throughout history from its pre-Columbian origins to the con- stitution of the modern national state. Moments of continuity and discontinuity of its spatial arrangements are identified in relation to the continuity and discontinuity of the socio-political regimes that follow one another. Finally, the article draws conclusions regarding the emergence of diachronic aspirations capable of consolidating themselves in space of places, cities and territories, using over time the instrument of apparently opposite regimes.

Keywords: Rue de Rivoli, Paseo del la Reforma, estado nacional, diachronic aspirations, spatial permanence, spatial arrangements.
