It seeks to promote sustainable development and orderly cities

“Caral is the best example of a city that grew up neatly. This is demonstrated by the remains found to account for a civilization that developed through a relationship between the heights of the hills with the pyramids. That shows that there was a cosmic vision how to organize cities depending on weather and climate, “noted dean of the Architects Association of Peru José Arispe Chavez.
He argued that the basis of how it was built in the Valley of Caral, are a contribution to humanity for earthquake-resistant buildings in cities and countries highly vulnerable as ours, so it is necessary to recover these technologies for more sustainable and safer cities.

This meeting will give some ground rules for the market does not work to their own devices and not think only of economic profitability but also on the social what will ensure sustainable cities and a better quality of life profitability, “he said.
