What would you do to transform the driest megacity in the world into a green oasis?

“500 years ago, Lima was an oasis made by society. Canals, kilometers of groves and sophisticated population centers harmonized with the landscape and nature. Why is Lima no longer that paradise? How can we return to being the city we once were?”
Soroush Sparsa
“When Pizarro arrived in Lima, this was a paradise. In the last 200 years, instead of carrying out sustainable conservation of the environment, due to lack of knowledge and will, the ecosystem has been destroyed.”
Gilda Cogorno
Archaeologist and researcher
"My dream is that by 2050 we will have intelligent fog catchers, that do not waste the fog and that allow all the people of Lima to have water."
Abel Cruz
“There is no force in the world more destructive than agriculture. It is the activity that collaborates the most with climate change and the first contributor to the devastation of the forests to convert them into agricultural areas. For this reason, our proposal is based on the idea that agriculture can transform Lima.”
Soroush Sparsa
“The huacas are in permanent danger of disappearing due to urban pressure. The only way to preserve these places is by activating them, making them part of urban life. What is sacred today in Lima joins what was sacred two thousand years ago.”
Jean-Pierre Crousse
Architect and urban planner

Lima 2035 is the search to turn urgent problems in a city into great opportunities. With water, food and new public spaces, Lima could become an oasis in the middle of the desert.

Lima 2035 proposes the use of three technologies to transform the capital of Peru:

Productive roofs so that families can produce their own food.

The reconception of the “huacas”, pre-Hispanic archaeological sites, to become places of learning and meeting.

Fog catchers to capture water.

Together we will make Lima a green city.

The most remote and isolated communities in Lima pay up to ten times the wealthier people pay for water.

A dream based on science.
