Falkland/Malvinas Architecture and Urbanism Exhibition in Ushuaia
The town hall of Ushuaia, province of Tierra del Fuego, far south of Argentina, in collaboration with the local branch of Malvinas veterans, inaugurated this week an exhibition entitled “Architecture and planning in Malvinas, 1764/1833” dedicated to people who lived in the Falklands/Malvinas during this period.
Senior provincial and city officials, military officers, representatives of the local association of architects and members of the Malvinas War veterans attended the opening of the show which is described as a historical overview and well documented of the islands, as well as a display of town planning and, essentially, reflecting the daily life of those who inhabited during this period.
Tierra del Fuego’s chief of staff, Mario Daniele, was the keynote speaker on the occasion and said, “No one defends what they don’t like, and to love first we have to know what is ours, what belongs to us. Let’s hope that children and teenagers will enjoy the exhibition as much as we do, and that it will become a new forum to put on the table the arguments of Argentine sovereignty over the Malvinas, because it is essential to transmit this heritage from generation to generation. .
The traveling exhibition that will remain in Ushuaia until next week was organized and presented by the Argentine Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Worship, in collaboration with the cultural branch of the Organization of Ibero-American States, the Documentation Center on Latin American architecture and the Argentine Library of Congress.
The exhibition is a historical and photographic exhibition of maps, plans and photographs that illustrate the different historical chapters of the Malvinas Islands focusing mainly on architecture, urban planning and the people who lived in the islands at the time.
