Architecture of Doom
Previ (Proyecto Experimental de Vivienda), Lima, Peru, 1960s: an experimental district collectively designed by a generation of avant-garde architects.
With contributions by Aldo van Eyck, Atelier 5, Charles Correa, Alexis Josic, Georges Candilis, Shadrach Woods, James Stirling, Kisho Kurokawa, Kiyonori Kikutake etc.
"Every family in PREVI has a story about their house. They may not know the architect’s name, but they know which international team designed it. It’s common to refer to the different typologies by nation: so and so lives in one of the Dutch houses, or in a French house. It’s a form of orientation. But more than that, the families within each typological quadrant have a sense of solidarity. During the football World Cup (in which Peru rarely features) they will support the country whose house they live in. Sometimes they even organise their own tournaments, on the pitch by the gate"
