Description

Based in Santiago, Chile, Elemental epitomises a new generation of pioneering, socially engaged architects. Led by Pritzker Prize-winner Alejandro Aravena, Elemental specializes in innovative, powerful, and humane public-interest projects, working on both large and small scales across Chile, the United States, Mexico, Switzerland, and China. This book beautifully, often irreverently, displays Elemental's unique working methods and philosophy: each project - from iconic structures like the Siamese Towers to elegant low-cost housing - is accompanied by Aravena's engaging texts, bringing to life his understanding of civil society and the built environment.

Author Biography

Chilean-based Alejandro Aravena established his own practice in 1994. From 2000 until 2005, he taught at Harvard University, where he founded Elemental with Andres Iacobelli. In 2010 he was granted membership as an International Fellow of RIBA. He curated the 2016 Venice Biennale, and in the same year received the Pritzker Prize.
