It is recomforting and healthy to see that pupils of different powers of architecture join efforts to safeguard our architectural heritage. In this opportunity they have met to take photographies and to gather general information of the Multifamiliar Building in the Juan de Aliaga- Magdalena Avenue, work of the architect Manuel Villarán Freire. Building that lamentably will be demolished, as they indicate, in a few weeks.
The commercial interest, the growth of the cities and the real-estate demand they have changed our urban profile and it carries to losing valuable architectural works, as many of the housings that already were demolished. Between most remembered the Donofrio House, the Truel House in San Isidro y nd lately the Cockburn House in Surquillo.
To achieve a correct backing in relation to our profession we have to understand our architectural evolution and be able to recognize the valuable works. We have the duty to safeguard and preserve the documentation for the education and this commitment we should assume it as part of our professional path.
Nowadays, we all are united in the labor of safeguarding the infografía of the magnificent Colective Building in the Av. Juan de Aliaga and to go forward to other similar cases.
I invite to realize a selection of one-family housings and modern multirelatives, who possess an architectural prominent quality and who we must go knowing them or recognizing them to safeguard her and to study them, in altars of contributing to the backing of our profession.
As a following step, I expose later a series of photographies of one-family and multifamiliar housings that I have been recognizing in the ciudades of Lima and provinces, the same ones that mean part of our architectural modern heritage.
