m.i.m.o is developing a research on deserts and their uses. It is going to be part of one of our graduation tesis. One of the case studies is about Lima. An 8 milion people city, placed in the nothern part of the desert of Atacama, South America. It is the capital of Perù, a country where the economical growth is around the 8% but still a place where the differences between poor and rich people are too much evident.
The topography drawn by the marginal desert dunes in some way make these social differences even more marked. Now we show you a sequence of images of the inspection of Lima and specially the southern arid desert.
