Machu Picchu: Reconnecting the LandscapeThu, 09/02/2010 - 1:00pm
Architecture student Carolina Sanchez will be representing the UL Lafayette School of Architecture and Design for the 2011 Archiprix Biennial International Competition at MIT in the fall. She will present her Architecture 402 project, Machu Picchu: Reconnecting the Landscape.
Sanchez’s proposal seeks to reclaim the ancient Inca trails of Machu Picchu as pedestrian ways and address erosion issues, which are the result of years of misuse. As she states in her proposal, “Each of the subtle reclamation strategies incorporated in this proposal ultimately seek to restore an appreciation of the intangible.”
Sanchez was also the spring 2010 recipient of the Faculty Award, which is the highest honor a student in the UL Lafayette School of Architecture and Design can receive. To learn more about Carolina Sanchez and her project Machu Picchu: Reconnecting the Landscape visit the Archiprix website.
