This proposed Hispanic Department Store in Downtown, Los Angeles, manifests the clash of the modern and the ancient. Latter is represented by the ensemble of motifs and statues from Mayan and Aztec temples reflecting the consumers’ heritage and its fatal crossing in time with the “modern” world that dominated it and built itself upon its ruins.
