Recent Work

Contemporary Chilean Architecture
Lecture at Ohio Latin Americanist Conference, The Ohio State University October 2017

The contemporary condition of architecture and landscape in Chile is one with recent momentum and success. Awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2016, Alejandro Aravena designs high end sculptural projects but is also an outspoken proponent for publically minded projects with a focus towards sustainability. Aravena’s projects are compelling for their morphological simplicity yet their spatial and textural complexities. Aravena isn’t the only Chilean creating notable architecture. Smijlan Radic creates architecture with a deliberate relationship to the ground, either burrowing into or hovering heavy elements above. His dramatic play of light and juxtaposition of contrasting materiality define his work as outside of the mainstream popularity that Aravena is enjoying. The discussion at the Ohio Latin Americanst Conference contrasted these two architects with specific projects. The lecture ended with the future for Chile including design of the cerros in Santiago and young designers Pezo von Ellrichshausen.
