Pachacamac Park Landscape Competition in Lima
With less than three years before the Bicentennial celebration of the Independence of Peru, the Ministry of Culture, the Municipality of Lima and the Centenario Group are proud to announce the launch of an international architecture and landscaping contest for the design of a metropolitan park in the perimeter of the Pachacamac Sanctuary in the district of Lurín, Lima.
The Sanctuary houses some of the most important structures of the national archaeological heritage, covering more than fifteen centuries of human occupation. The design of a cultural park along the northern perimeter of the complex therefore invites designers to reflect on the relationship that Lima has and should have with its historical and landscape heritage.
The call is part of the same initiative that launched the MALI contest in 2016 : “2021: Bicentennial Projects”, directed by architect Gary Leggett. The park project will also belong to the official agenda of the Bicentennial, managed by the Ministry of Culture, and a tripartite agreement will be signed between the Ministry of Culture, the Municipality of Lima, and the Centenario Group, to provide an institutional framework for the development of the winning proposal.
