Happy Anniversary Lima. (Satellite image c. 1535). A fertile valley irrigated by a canal system composing an environmental infrastructure. From Carabayllo by the North to Chorrillos occupying more than half of the current urban factory (referential) and where the territory was a mixture of rituals, life, and production. 484 years later, it is indispensable that Lima allows the territory to become visible, functioning as the backbone of all public spaces in the city. The territory cities like Lima should be understood as an extensive amalgam of interruptions and continuities resolved on the hybridization of natural and artificial systems. Nature and urbanity can not be alien and distinct elements, they coexist and the landscape stops being an external agent of the urban area to become part of the city: The landscape of the city is the same city.
