An illustrated portrait of the Peruvian architect Javier Artadi
'I am an architect from the coast of Peru, a desert strip with unique characteristics due to the presence of the Humboldt cold water current in the ocean that creates an environment that is not too hot, not too cold and where it never rains.'
Javier Artadi is emerging as the leading Latin American contemporary landscape architect for his work and ongoing research on the relationship between architecture and desert landscape of the Peruvian coast.
Winner of the Fourth Latin American Architecture Biennale of Architecture with Playa Las Arenas, he took fourth place in the Contest Place of Memory and two honourable mentions at the Fourteenth National Architecture Biennale 2010 with projects in House in La Encantada, Edificio Residencial Costa, among others.
This monograph is the result of his work as an architect, researcher and teacher and, therefore, an essential reference work for scholars and professionals.
