summary San Juan city was almost completely destroyed by an earthquake in 1944. The present work intends to show a series of readings about urban space of the pre 44 city. Our purpose is to find out the variation of its qualities at different levels of formatization of the spaces; and the tales of constants that could be operating in the symbolic construction of the city, by the inhabitant’s mental representations. To describe the missing city, to rebuild it as a digital patrimony in order to understand its identity features, means to search for into its history , qualities and uses of its places and shapes. With a new video which resumes the results of the digital reconstruction of the city, the present research intends to share our questions about the ruptures and mutations at the urban level in order to build a possible answer from the urban virtuality.
