541. Lima, Peru. Hospital del Seguro Social del Empleado

Dear Mario,

“Architecture should be timeless and convey by its very
fiber the assurance of permanence"
(Edward Durell Stone)

  2. Mr Hicks Stone. I like your father's design of this great hospital, and I often visited it years ago. It has an enormous hall and feels like inside an embassy or something like that, so beautiful and 1957-styled. Respectfully yours, Erick

    Es un disenio muy internacionalista y con cierta influencia estadounidense, realmente.

  3. Cuantos pisos tiene? y para que usos tiene la estuctura superior encima del edificio mismo? agradezco sus respuestas. Erick
