Panama Canal Competition
As a celebration of our school´s 10th anniversary and in commemoration of the 200 years of the independence movement in most Latin American countries, ISTHMUS (Escuela de Arquitectura y Diseño de América Latina y el Caribe), is sponsoring a competition to submit, through creative far-fetched proposals, new images for the Panama Canal.

This Panama construction is one of the modern wonders of the world and one of the most important symbols of our continent.

The crossing between the oceans in Panama is an exceptional and unforgettable experience.
