The architecture which preceded the sixteenth-century Spanish Conquest of Central and South America is outstanding for its expression of strength and vitality.
From the beginning of the Christian era — even earlier — the pagan civilizations that dominated this area had developed relatively undisturbed by outside influences. Of these, the Aztec and the Maya peoples of Mexico, and the Incas of Peru left a legacy of especially impressive monuments. Tenochtitlan, principal city of the Aztecs, would probably be closer to our mid-twentieth-century ideal of a well planned city than any which were built in the Spain of Cortes, its conqueror. The concern for integration of various architectural elements within a city, especially the sophisticated plans found in the Maya cities of Yucatan, somewhat parallels our own attempts to establish unity within our constantly growing, expanding cities.
