The Standout Structures of 2016 Pritzker Prize Winner Alejandro Aravena
on 13 January 2016
This year’s Pritzker Prize, architecture’s equivalent of the Nobel prize, has been awarded to Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena. Aravena is best known for his work with design studio Elemental, which relies on thoughtful architecture and “participatory design” to alleviate poverty and eliminate slums. In light of the honor, Dezeen has rounded up standout structures from Aravena’s 22-year-long career, including his acclaimed “half a house” concepts and the Santiago-based cubic UC Innovation Center.
