“Zona de Frontera” is a juxtaposition of various intellectual processes resulting from readings, reflections, and interpretations of a historical conflict zone within an arid region in constant transformation. Located between the Andes mountains, the desert, the basin of the Mochica, and the Pacific Ocean, the Chan Chan Ruins (political and religious center of the Chimu culture) are within the city limits Trujillo, the second large city in the north coast of Peru.
This project is the result of a union of multiple formal relations between various formal structures (axis, trajectories, and events) simultaneously articulated in a set of interactions (rhythms and absences) that explore the limits of architecture itself. A projection of the space where the individual devices produce an effect comparable to the mechanisms of unconsciousness: transition, association, contemplation, flowing, sensation. It is a cyclic network, linear network, simultaneous network; transitional passage.
