Office of Versatile Architecture (OVA) – Graduated Architects
Barranco, Lima, Perú
The exhibition is conceived under the contemporary ideas of a team made up of 2 architects, capable of interpreting art and science as a unit; a specialist in computer science at the forefront of new technologies; and a public manager aware of the conflicts and the national reality facing our country. Together, they found a way to represent the current problems of our country in an artistic exhibition.

The objective of this exhibition is to call people to know 4 problems that face the Peruvian reality at a national level, demonstrate through art and technology the complexity of this and invite us to think about two realities, the current and the ideal.

The centerpiece of the exhibition is the result of a synthesis between art, science and technology. Through the use of computer programs, statistical data of all the departments of Peru on subjects framed in 4 pillars (Economic, environmental, social and political) was represented in graphic form, a sculpture. The statistics used were the level of poverty, loss of forests, cases of feminicide and attempts; and perception of corruption. These data were interpreted in a parametric computer program where the numbers could result in a form, in this way the resulting form objectively reflects all these real data. It should be noted that being parametric if the statistics change, the form will too, understanding that this computer code can be used again and again on countless occasions. All this design process will be reflected in an infographic that will be displayed on the surrounding wall.

Likewise, the exhibition has four cubicles connected to each other that exemplify the 4 pillars of the central exhibition through an audiovisual tour. To start the tour, you should read the QR codes located at the entrances of the cubicles that, together with the support of the AR technology and an application designed specifically for this exhibition, will allow the viewer to observe, through his cell phone, a door that reflects how our country should ideally be without these problems, in such a way that the viewer can have an approach to these and question about what kind of country we want in the future. When going through these doors, the viewer will encounter a series of images and an audio record that, through a narrative, explains and tells specific cases and real stories of the Peruvian reality and how these 4 themes connect with each other.

Finally, all the walls have a design of irregular lines joined together, at first glance they do not have a concrete meaning. But by using AR technology and scanning these walls we can appreciate that each line represents the departments of Peru. Wanting to convey in this way that our country is not separated by borders, but that we are a single visual unit, and therefore this national reality belongs to all of us.
