Forging into new territory, the magazine introduces 25 works built in Latin America in recent years across three themes: metropolis, society, and landscape. Guest-edited by Argentinian architect and architectural historian Jorge Francisco Liernur, the selection will pique readers’ interest in the region, and forms an in-depth, diverse picture of the historical influences and cultural backgrounds at play in its architecture. From eye-catching architectonic gestures to new forms for traditional materials, the featured works embody the fast-paced metropolitan transformations taking place, changing attitudes towards natural contexts, and relationships with local building history.
