In Peru, as in other Latin American countries, the arrival of modern architecture will condition a material production based on formal abstract principles, being in some cases, oblivious to the construction of links of identity or belonging to specific realities. Instead, Peruvian postmodernism will try to renounce formalism and symbolism as a physical characteristic to begin to discover complexity in its rhetorical discourse, on which relations with the past are to be built, not as a historical reference, but rather as a cultural reference. Trough the revision of the works and projects carried out by Peruvian architects from the educational reform from 1946 to the 1980s, it has been possible to identify the changes in the form of Peruvian architecture and the conflict that persists between wanting to belong to the universal language while, at the same time, wanting to be part of the local culture. Understanding this process of development of the form seeks not only knowledge of history, but also provides tools and projective reflections for contemporary architectural production.
