Why does South America produce so many architects?

The discipline of architecture is held in high esteem in South America.

One example is Cesar Pelli, who was born in Argentina in 1922 and immigrated to the United States.

In the 1960s and 1970s, he earned acclaim for such projects as the Vienna International Center and the World Financial Towers in Manhattan.

In 1977, he became dean of the architecture school at Yale University.
