Barclay & Crousse stand out in the landscape of Latin American architecture. Sandra Barclay (Lima, 1967) and Jean Pierre Crousse (Lima, 1963) initially set up their studio in Paris. In 2006, they relocated to ima, where they have undertaken both private and public commissions that have showcaed their bold ideas that go beyond the architectural program and its context. More than establising relationships with the depth of their facades eroding the boundaries between interior and exterior, creating sacred spaces of encounter where the extraordinary is a part of everyday life.
Landscapes of intimacy brings together five essential aspects of their practice: landscapes and microcosms, ambigous space, indoor exteriors, matter and the map, and the thickness of intimacy, explored through a selection of twelve projects that include the Place of Remebrancem,a series of houses in Perú,and the Univeristy of Piura`s Edificio E, which won them the Mies Crown Hall Americans Prize (MCHAP) in 2018.
