RESIDENTIAL ARCHITECTURE: 2016 Pritzker Laureate Alejandro Aravena Makes His Public Housing Designs Open Source
Villa Verde Housing in Constitución, Chile
The 2016 Pritzker Architecture Prize laureate, Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, has made the plans for four of his public housing projects available for free online, a move emblematic of an effort by his firm, Elemental, to design better social housing and to make it more widely available, particularly to underrepresented communities. The announcement was made during a press conference at the U.N. headquarters in New York, a day after the Pritzker awards ceremony there. The projects, all located in Chile, are Quinta Monroy Housing, in Iquique; Villa Verde Housing, in Constitución; Monterrey Housing, in Monterrey; and Lo Barnechea, in Santiago.
