Freddy Mamani’s architectures look like toys

Freddy Mamani is a Bolivian architect active since 2005 in the city of La Paz, where he has created works characterized by an extremely colorful style where the buildings seem to belong to a technicolor-oneiric world made of toy houses. The suburban part of the city, El Alto, was initially a destination for desperate people who sought fortune in the metropolis from the countryside and all the houses in this area had exposed bricks.

Over time the area has become the new middle-class zone, which has also sought architecture to affirm the status of those who managed to build a future from nothing. As always, architecture is the mirror of culture and complex relationship between man and city: it is impossible not to notice these opulent, colorful and singular houses.

Freddy has created a stylistic code which contrasts with minimalism, showing another face of modernity. Discover his works in our gallery.
