This was the first participation of Peru at the Venice Architecture biennale. The exhibition exposed 20 reflections developed by 20 architectural studies for a new town in the arid desert of the Peruvian coast, revisiting the traditions of its former inhabitants: the Moche culture. We exposed the 20 terracotta models and its graphics as archaeological remains with light spots that created a contrast to enhance their depths and textures. The base that holds the 20 projects subtly proposes the adobe walls that belonged to the pre-Columbian cultures of Peru.
