Nuevo Andino / Freddy Mamani


Whether you love it or hate it, the divisive architectural style taking over the Bolivian city of El Alto is certainly a departure from the norm, injecting bold shapes and colours into an otherwise average cityscape. Local architect Freddy Mamani, who has spent the last 18 years developing the signature style he calls Nuevo Andino (New Andean), felt that El Alto was too monochrome. Each of his buildings is like a unique sculptural work of art aiming to enliven the city and pay homage to ancient indigenous motifs of the area — via Web Urbanist
