Urban Collages (1966 / 1971)
Motivation
Following the completion of the academic research “Formulation of a Constructive Hypothesis Based on a Search of the Integration of Building and Urbanistic Standards” personal doubts about the “irrational faith in reason”, motivated the need to express more freely the ambiguity of industrialization and high technology, expressing on one hand its attractiveness and beauty as in the series “Fluídica Urbana” (Urban Fluidity), and on the other hand its terrible threat as in the collages "Caution Radiation Area", "New York Keeps Growing", and "Miraflores".
 
Eight of the following collages are part of the Permanent Collection of MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art, New York). They were displayed in the 2015 exhibit "Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980".
 
Motivación
A raíz de la finalización del trabajo de investigación “Formulación de una hipótesis constructiva a través de la búsqueda de integración entre estándares edilicios y urbanísticos”, las dudas personales sobre “la fe irracional en la razón”, motivaron la necesidad de expresar más libremente la ambigüedad de la industrialización y la alta tecnología, expresando por un lado su atractivo y belleza como en la serie “Fluídica urbana”, y por otro lado su terrible amenaza como en los collages “Caution Radiation Area”, “Nueva York sigue creciendo” y “Miraflores”.
 
Ocho de estos collages hacen parte de la Coleccion Permanente del MoMA (The Museum of Modern Art, Nueva York). Fueron también expuestos en la exposición del 2015 "Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980".
