AD Interviews: Alejandro Aravena / Pritzker Laureate 2016



ArchDaily speaks with Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena. Named the 2016 Pritzker Laureate, Aravena has a large portfolio of private, public and educational projects in Chile, the USA, Mexico, China and Switzerland. But perhaps more notably, through his “Do Tank” firm ELEMENTAL he has managed to build 2,500 units of social housing, engaging in the public housing policies of governments where he works and taking an opportunistic approach to market forces to generate a powerful impact on lower-income communities.
