Alejandro Aravena: Elemental

Incremental Housing and Participatory Design Manual

Text by Alejandro Aravena, Andrés Iacobelli.

The definitive document on the architecture-as-advocacy of 2016 Pritzker Prize-winner, Alejandro Aravena

What began as an academic initiative to improve the quality of life of the poor strata of the population has now become a professional “do tank” offering services that cover the entire spectrum of urban development. The celebrated Chilean architect, winner of the 2016 Pritzker Prize and Director of the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale, Alejandro Aravena (born 1967) founded Elemental in 2001 in his hometown with the goal of alleviating social deprivation directly instead of hoping for a balance of income relations. Besides building public facilities and public housing, Elemental also develops new approaches for the reorganization of resources and the potential of cities by means of projects devoted to infrastructure and transportation. This volume, first published in 2013 and now back in print, documents the social activity and history of the international architectural team and sheds light on its financing strategies, for example through participatory building.

Alejandro Aravena: Elemental

Alejandro Aravena: ElementalDesigned by Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena of the Santiago-based firm Elemental, this project for 70 families in Nuevo León, Mexico, is an example of the incremental housing and participatory design that earned Aravena the 2016 Pritzker Prize. Each unit contains two homes that must be finished and personalized by the owner. Located in a middle-class neighborhood where the average home price is $50,000, Elemental Monterey's innovative participatory design allows for each unit to come in between $20,000 and $25,000. "The location will mean an immediate value gain for the properties, but also expresses that the units will benefit from higher urban standards of public space, access to jobs, health care, education and transportation." continue to blog
