Title: “Undercover. 4000 Years of Architecture and Urban Planning in an Unexpected Place: Lima”
Commissioner: José Orrego Herrera
Curators: Marianela B. Castro de la Borda, Janeth Boza, Javier Lizarzaburu Montani

Peru immediately brings to mind the Incas and the grandeur of Machu Picchu. Little is known, however, about its capital, Lima, a city where it never rains. With 7 mm of annual rainfall, it is one of the driest on Earth. This has been a decisive factor in the survival of a great number of adobe architectural monuments in the past 4000 years – 447 structures, to be precise. The curators found reserves of generosity in this legacy.
