EXTRA-ORDINARY: New Practices in Chilean Architecture Exhibition Opening

« All Events

Join us at the Center for Architecture on June 22 for the opening of EXTRA-ORDINARY: New Practices in Chilean Architecture! Chile has gained international recognition for its extraordinary architecture. This success reflects the high-quality modern architecture of the 1960s and the resurgence of new architectural practices at the beginning of the twenty-first century, following a cultural blackout in the seventies and eighties.

During the twentieth century, contemporary architecture in Chile evolved from executing traditional programs in line with the modern precepts of the 1960s towards new architectural practices. The recent eruption of globalized design tools, as well as new local cultural quests, has paved the way for architecture that promotes research and encourages new programs and practices. Architecture emerges as a reflection of research processes, some temporary and others recycled, to build on past works using a contemporary vocabulary.

EXTRA-ORDINARY presents 18 recently completed projects by 16 Chilean architects, including recent Pritzker Prize winner Alejandro Aravena of Elemental. The exhibition showcases photography, schematic drawings, ephemera, and video interviews with the Chilean design community, introducing New York City audiences to the diverse architecture emerging from Chile.
