The School of Architecture is proud to sponsor the Opening Reception for Luis Longhi's exhibit, "Moments of Creation", scheduled for Friday, February 20th, from 500 to 6:30 p.m. in the Lower Gallery of Cheever Hall. Luis Longhi was born in Puno, Peru in 1954, next to Lake Titicaca, the sacred lake of the Inca. After studying and living in the United States and India for fifteen years, Luis felt the calling of his ancestors and returned to his homeland in hopes of recovering the essence of an architecture from these lands - conceiving what could be a contemporary Inca architecture, retying his production to the broken threads that connect him with the land of his youth. Founded in 1996, Longhi Architects is an interdisciplinary practice involved in rigorous design and research that yields innovative solutions. The firm specializes in the artistic side of the profession, having design and executed world recognized theater stages, public installations and small architectural projects where the integration with nature is fundamental. In 2010 Luis Longhi won the Gold Medla for Architecture awarded by the Peruvian Institute of Architecture.
