Our cultural moment might be described as one of intense self-reflection, foregrounding questions of identity and what it means to belong in any particular context. This problematizes the architecture as a transcriptive discipline for identifying, materializing and, most importantly, defining the ideological conditions of given contexts, cultures and programs. This extension to an existing art museum in Lima, Peru, takes to task preservation for its immediate engagement with identity and its potentials to offer challenges and ruminations on the nature of cultural identity.
