The present book reviews from an architectonic perspective the urban development of the city of ILO, a port town in southern Peru. The authors review the multidimensional process aimed at creating a new image for the city through architectonic interventions in the downtown areas and the the embankments where the talent of architect Ramirez Chirinos made possible the dreams of the people proving that regardless of profound bias and economic limitations it is still possible to create contemporary architecture and urban design "making opportunity out of adversity".
