A look at a leading Peruvian architectural firm through 12 exemplary projects From their Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize-winning design for the University of Piura educational facilities to their design for the Place of Remembrance in Lima, Barclay & Crousse's work binds together the most current advances in technology with designs that center on the quality of life of its dwellers. Their works show how design specific to the conditions of developing countries can inform and be vital to global architectural conversation. Founded in Paris by Sandra Barclay and Jean Pierre Crousse in 1994, the firm relocated to Lima, Peru, in 2006, pursuing their projects in Europe through Atelier Nord-Sud. This book presents 12 buildings illustrated through sketches, plans and over 120 photographs by Chilean photographer Cristóbal Palma. The volume is a work unto itself that demonstrates the architects' mastery of space.
