The architect Alejandro Aravena from Chile becameCurator of the 15th Venice Biennale in Architecture Architect Alejandro Aravena from Chile became curator of the 15th Venice Biennale in the field of architecture, writes TASS. In the near future, he will speak about the exhibition and tell about its participants. However, it is already known that the exposition is about "how to study architecture through intellect, intuition or through them together." Aravena is an architect with an active social position. He works at Elemental, which is engaged in the reconstruction of disadvantaged areas or, in simple terms, slums and the design of affordable housing. According to the architect, the situation can be remedied considerably by overcoming social barriers, and he proves it in practice through the realization of his ideas. After the earthquake in Chile, his office, for example, proposed to build low block houses, which can be accessible to the most disadvantaged groups of the population. The architect is a member of the Pritzker Prize jury. His work has repeatedly exhibited at the Triennale in Milan and at the Biennale in Sao Paulo. Also, his work could be seen at the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum in New York. In 2008 he was awarded the "Silver Lion" of the Venice Architectural Biennale.
