Peruvian pavilion – OUR AMAZON FRONTLINE

Our Amazon Frontline, the title of the exhibition in the Peruvian Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016, refers to a vast cultural, social and environmental project aimed to protect the Amazon rainforest and to involve local communities into the process.
Once again, schooling, education, high-quality architecture, and socializing spaces are the instruments adopted to promote multiculturalism and to connect populations of different life style and cultural background.

The exhibition in Venice particularly focuses on Plan Selva, a public project started in 2015 and promoted by the Ministry of Education of Peru, aimed to built hundreds of schools in rural areas of the Amazon region, remotely located and often lacking even the most basic infrastructures.

The new school buildings, conceived by a team composed of 14 architects and industrial designers, were designed to be modular, easy to build, suitable for the local climate, and to make use of locally-sourced materials. Through the new structures, the objective is to reinstate dignity to populations which are currently pushed to the sidelines of the Peruvian society, as well as to make different and apparently incompatible words meet.
