A Line in the Andes -- a one year investigation developed at the Harvard Graduate school of design -- examines the transformative role of the first underground metro line currently being implemented in the city of Quito (Ecuador). Through archival material, original drawings, and text, this publication frames the metro project within the city's historic and current urban form, visualizing the urban potential of this contemporary valley-city. In doing so, the material documented in this book sets the stage for well-informed design deliberations regarding an urban future Quito deserves. The book also includes a collection of essays by Rahul Mehotra, Quito Mayor Augusto Barrera, Edgar Jacome, Pablo Perez Ramos, Martin Cobas, Graciela Silvestri, and Ana Maria Duran Calisto. The writings expand on a series of themes related to Quito and frame the city within a broader geographic and disciplinary context.A Line in the Andes -- a one year investigation developed at the Harvard Graduate school of design -- examines the transformative role of the first underground metro line currently being implemented in the city of Quito (Ecuador).A Line in the Andes illuminates the contradictory beauty of a city both ancient and contemporary and challenges us to believe in the possibility that geography can catalyze a truly unique urban future. This book is a valuable resource for scholars, designers, and those who believe in our collective responsibility to bring innovation and insight to the evolution of every city. Marion Weiss Graham Chair Professor Of Architecture, University Of Pennsylvania, Cofounder Of Weiss / Manfredi - Architecture / Landscape / UrbanismThe manner in which this applied research project examines the diverse forms of urban transformation and growth of Quito with the impact of major transportation projects upon a generic and elastic grid frames Quito as a paradigm for other cities with limited resources that are undergoing processes of rapid urbanization.Jls+
