  • The 21st Century Fight for the Amazon: Peru: A Legal Enforcement Model for the Amazon

    Gómez Apac, Hugo R.; de Taboada, María Antonieta Merino; Mandujano, Milagros Granados (Springer International Publishing, 2017-01)
    Written by the directors of one of the Amazon Basin’s strongest enforcement bodies, this chapter describes, in great detail, how a national agency puts together a nationwide system of environmental enforcement able to reach into every activity and region. It also shows how that system grapples with the country’s vast Amazon region amid clamors for economic development, tensions between the central government and local populations, the uncertainty of national politics, and other formidable roadblocks for what could be an international model of ecological enforcement.

  • Detras del lienzo: un perfil al artista Ramiro Llona

    Castro, Rosario (Universidad Peruana de Ciencias Aplicadas (UPC), 2017-01)
    Un hombre con el espíritu inquieto y las pasiones a flor de piel, que se dejó envolver por los deseos de calmar sus dudas internas con respecto a lo que lo motivaba en la vida. Decidió dejar atrás un prometedor futuro como arquitecto para dedicar sus energías, su alma, sus emociones, y sus demonios a su verdadera vocación: el arte. Cuando el sentimiento es más fuerte, lo demás no importa. Ramiro Llona se encaminó en una aventura artística en Nueva York, lugar en el que se conectó con los distintos estilos artísticos de profesionales que tanto admiraba. El arte calmó las expectativas de su corazón, pero sus hijos: María, Cristóbal, Ramiro y Sofía, saciaron el fervor de su alma y la vitalidad de sus días.

  • HOMO FABER: Digital fabrication Latin America CAAD Futures 2015 > the next city

    Sperling, David M.; Herrera Polo, Pablo C. (Instituto de Arquitetura e Urbanismo de São Carlos, 2015-07)
    The Exhibition “Homo Faber: Digital Fabrication in Latin America” is an event related to the CAAD Futures 16th Conference, “The Next City”. The proposal to support this exhibition responds to the need to grasp more widely the Latin American digital fabrication context linked to the field of architecture. This was a rich and challenging process of capturing an ever changing scenario. Mapping, as Janet Abrams and Peter Hall remember us, “has emerged in the information age as a means to make the complex accessible, the hidden visible, the unmappable mappable (…) mapping refers to a process – ongoing, incomplete and of indeterminate, mutable form.” (Else/where: mapping. New cartographies of networks and territories, 2006) Our mapping highlights a recent context of starting and development of fab labs in Latin America. Beginning in university research centers, and consolidated in university platforms, this movement expands with the formation of laboratory networks and the emergence of studios and independent researchers investigating and exploring new uses for digital fabrication in architecture and in related fields.
