Technology for understanding the relationship between colonial architecture and society that took place necessarily have to assume that the buildings are a reflection of the people who think that these have not only been materialized by a technology that already existed that made but also conceivable that they would leave its trace the inhabitants in all parts of it, from its spatial distribution, furniture to each and every one of the components thereof, of course include social status they belonged to these people, so it is necessary to clearly define what we mean when we talk about technology, science, culture, and society. The technology is by Mario Bunge a body of knowledge if and only if - is compatible with science coetanea and controllable by the scientific method is employed to control, transform, or build things or processes, natural or social [1] John Kenneth Galbraith , defines the technology: as the systematic application of scientific method (or other organized knowledge) to practical tasks. [2] Lynn White, technology and culture, "Technology is the systematic modification of the physical environment for human purposes" [3] Hence we have the technology then covers a wide range of scientific, socio-cultural structure, production infrastructure and the mutual relations that arise. We can conceive that in a pure technology begins to develop from the moment he begins to make the first changes to the world in which power is developed to suit your own needs, then then the technology becomes an essential condition for the development of civilization as we know whose immediate end is the industrialization of production processes of a social environment, the latter in turn has printed a stamp of necessity and has accelerated at an unprecedented scale with the result the great events in all areas known in recent centuries.
"Technology, says Marx, discover the dynamic relationship between man and nature, the immediate process of production which sustains his life, while also their social conditions of life and the mental conceptions that flow from them . "[4] The idea that technology is at the forefront and that somehow is the generator of all innovations at least in some fields is not a condition for development, although science is the precursor of many inventions of them worked long before science established theories for many of the discoveries did not originate in labs as we know them today, for example many plants in indigenous cultures have been used as generators being in such and such conditions, although at the time there was no clear scientific explanation to explain the properties of such plants is decirel scientific development is independent of whether this is responsible for setting the fees for technological advancement.
