Idea Code 20102


For many, it is the utopian vacation homes that brought Chilean architecture into the international spotlight, and yet now we are beginning to see a different group of architects investigating less individualistic visions. Chile’s idyllic landscape offers a perfect canvas for its architects to express poetry in their designs. As they engage with public or non-profit projects that focus on social and sustainable issues that had little traction under Chile’s oppressive military regime (1973–1990), they seek to forge a new cultural identity in a united land. This issue features a variety of work by Smiljan Radić, Max Núñez, Cazu Zegers Architects, OWAR Architects, Guillermo Acuña, and others.
