Peruvian practice Llonazamora has inserted a wood and metal construction juxtaposing architectural elements of Lima's Republican buildings inside LIGA in Mexico City for the gallery's 19th exhibition.

Llonazamora – the architecture and landscape studio founded in 2009 and directed by Michelle Llona and Rafael Zamora – have extracted everything from rooms to staircases and balconies into their Grammar. Collaged or "cut up" (the Dadaist technique of rearranging text popularized by William S. Burroughs) to create unexpected relationships, the construction is modified by visitors to create an ever-changing construction that mirrors Lima's ongoing evolution.

Grammar is on display at LIGA through November 2015.
