Title

GSA–BOOGERTMAN + PARTNERS INTERNATIONAL LECTURE SERIES 2018

Presenter
(Name and some background info – bio on the presenter)

Alejandro Aravena (Santiago, Chile 1967), graduated as an architect from Catholic University of Chile in 1992. He continued his studies of Theory and Art History in IUAV in Venice. In 1994 he established his own practice, Alejandro Aravena Architects. From 2000 until 2005, he taught at Harvard University where he founded the ‘Do-Tank’ ELEMENTAL with Andrés Iacobelli. In 2010 he was granted membership as an International Fellow of the Royal Institute of British Architects. He also curated the 15th Venice Biennale, and in 2016 he received the Pritzker Prize. Since 2001 he has remained principal director of ELEMENTAL. Together with partners Gonzalo Arteaga, Juan Cerda, Victor Oddó and Diego Torres, ELEMENTAL produces work that stands out for its engagement in projects that range from housing to public space; from objects to buildings and covering a wide spectrum of interests. Their unbiased approach to a given question enables the office to enter fields they have not yet explored, generating original contributions to peoples’ quality of life.
