Another of the authors is Hernani Canessa, of Vértice Arquitectos with Casa El Bucaré, a single-family house located in Lima (Peru) formed by two axes with four free facades.

"The project Curriculum seeks to highlight the young promises of Latin American architecture by recognising the talent and trajectory of our alumni students from the Master's Degree in Theory and design Architectural Architecture. It is an opportunity to get closer to our alumni, to link them back to their 'alma mater', the School, and to celebrate that the best emerging Latin American architecture has a common point of origin, our classrooms", says Carlos Naya, director of the School of Architecture of the University of Navarra.
For his part, Luis Suárez Mansilla, director of Master's Degree, highlighted the high quality of the works exhibited and how their authors "have been able to construct, with rigour, such good examples of architecture, in such diverse places and under such disparate circumstances".
