Archaeologists in Peru have discovered a tomb belonging to a pre-Hispanic priestess, the eighth in over two decades -- which they say confirms their belief that powerful women ruled the region 1,200 years ago.
Are we at the turning point between Yin and Yang once again? How would this affect our world today?
Lebbeus Woods envisaged a world at war. The visionary architect, artist, and educator – who would have turned 73 today – drew cities under duress, buildings in the face of destruction, and landscapes confronting catastrophe. He imagined an underground city connecting divided Berlin, buildings designed for seismic hot zones that could move during earthquakes, and a utopian city that looked like an insect. He didn’t depict the world as it was, he depicted what it might be.
His drawings were not proposals. They were experiments: architecture for architecture’s sake, answering questions clients would not ask, disobeying laws, of nature and government. They explored the politics of architecture, imagining the ruptures (of all types) created by war, natural disaster, violence, governments, etc. Beautifully rendered with uncanny realism, the drawings border on science-fantasy. Yet they are eerily believable.
Below street level in Mexico City, archaeologists have found a jumble of bones dating to the 1480s.
In the 1970s, construction workers unearthed numerous archaeological finds as the subway was being constructed. The Mexican government decided to clear the several block of old colonial buildings to reveal the Templo Mayor, the ancient Aztec religious center. Not coincidentally, the Spaniards built their religious center in the same place. During the colonial era, the indigenous residents who spoke Spanish in Mexico City still referred to this portion of the city as la pirámide. Today more finds such as this one are continuing to help us piece together the past of this immensely rich, multi-layered place filled with symbolic value.

No surprise that the main square is likely built on an Aztec center. Previously unearthed ruins stand to prove part of the structures are there and like relics and religious artifacts, human remains can also tell the story.
