Federico adores his city and is a real advocate for the the global value of Chilean architecture. “We have a type of signature architecture in Chile that is one of the best in the world: Mathias Klotz, Smiljan Radic and now, Alejandro Aravena, a Pritzker prizewinner. There are numerous Chilean architects from an extraordinary generation who have raised our country’s architecture to among the best in the world. These architects know how to reinterpret a series of modern values and ideals. I would say that what is interesting about our country is that, just as English-speaking nations have embraced the concept of high tech, in Chile we have taken on low tech, and it would seem our architecture achieves marvellous sophistication from this low-tech angle. And that is fantastic.”
