Parque de la Exposición, Lima (2010-2011)
The eclectic and emblematic Exhibition Park (1872), with its multiple-style pavilions and exotic fountains, was chosen in 2010 to host the multitudinous “Mistura” Gastronomic Fair.
A huge amount of different pavilions had to be added to the existing architectural elements of the park, all attempting to call the attention of the 500,000 visitors. How did we neutralize those individual desires while equally liberating the park and its monuments? We aligned the entire program at the edges of the park in one sole temporary pavilion, 1.2km long, with changes in its shape and colour according to its contents: restaurants, food market, auditorium, bakery, restrooms... like a giant anaconda that swallowed them all.
