Latin American Incrementalism: From PREVI to the Present
to the Present
A symposium exploring the contributions
of Latin American progressive housing
strategies and participatory design to
architecture and urban development.
Beginning with an analysis of the precedentsetting Proyecto Experimental de Vivienda
(PREVI) developed in the late 1960s in Peru,
the symposium will examine the spectrum
of more recent strategies in Latin America,
where architects and local communities use
the intense need for housing and usable public
space as premises for their “incrementalist”
Symposium attendees will have complimentary
access to the exhibition Latin America in
Construction: Architecture 1955–1980 in
between the morning and afternoon sessions.
Speakers include: Barry Bergdoll, Lucía Calcagno,
Rosalie Genevro, Catalina Justiniano, Peter
Land, Manuel Llanos, Fernando Luíz Lara,
Alejandro de Castro Mazarro, Patricio del Real,
and Felicity Scott.
This program is presented by The Architectural
League of New York, Columbia University
