Seven sessions on a monthly basis, presented by international researchers reflecting on some of the
protagonists of the Latin American Modern Movement who have developed urban projects for the
continent, contributing to the debate on the contemporary urban landscape.
After the first lecture series (October-December 2020), “Roundtrip: From the Seine to the Rio de La
Plata” (see more on YouTube Channel ex-momo) on the relationship between Le Corbusier and
Argentina starting from the journey of 1929, in this second cycle will deepen the role of the
protagonists of the Latin American Modern Movement through the architects – from Berta Zegarra
Russo to German Semper, from Luz Amorocho to Lucio Costa – who developed an educational and
professional relationship between the two continents.
The aim of these meetings is to reflect on urban projects, whether completed or not, the result of the
exchanges of shared modernity between Europe and Latin America. Among the topics: the role of
correspondence exchanges / the contribution of women architects / the realization of the urban
proposals of the Modern Movement / preservation and enhancement of the heritage resulting from
these exchanges.
