Two urban discourses occurred before and after 1970 with their differences and similarities: the first indebted to the functionalism of the International Congresses of Modern Architecture (CIAM) and critical of tradition, and the second resulting from 1970s historicist reaction which, critical of the CIAM, focussed on the revival of traditional forms. Here, we analyse two urban approaches in a single geographical location: Baranain, located in the region of Pamplona (Navarra, Spain). The two plans (1967 and 1984) correspond to these urban discourses. Yet, on analysing them, we can see that the original discourses contain a hint of discipline-related mismatch, since - in both cases - places the criticism of previous designs before the social or geographical conditions.
