Unfolding Maps: Civic Centre for Cusco
Through the unfolding of ancient vessels, the project extends the microcosmology of Andean culture embodied in its craftwork, providing a folded ‘architectural map’ of present-day Cusco. It aims to address the conflict between tourism and archaeological development in Cusco by mapping and compositing multi-scalar, geographical and perceptual elements with ‘affordances’ for urban Andeans.
