On the eve of the opening of The Metropolis in Latin America, 1830–1930, cocurators Maristella Casciato and Idurre Alonso, along with professors Diana Agrest (Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture), Luis Carranza (Columbia GSAPP), and Patricio del Real (Harvard University) examine the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century growth and transformations of urban centers in Latin America.
The panel will examine how urban and sociopolitical events reshaped the architectural landscape of key colonial cities, converting them into bustling metropolises. Speakers will focus on the urban transformations and the work of several architects in cities such as Buenos Aires, Rio de Janeiro, and Mexico City, addressing at the same time the impact of the emergence of a bourgeois elite, the building of infrastructure projects, and rapid industrialization.Buy tickets/get more info now
