In the near future he will give information about the exhibition and tell about its participants. However, it is already known that the exposition is about “how to learn architecture through intellect, intuition, or through both of them”. Aravena is an architect with an active social position. He works for Elemental, a firm that redecorates disadvantaged neighborhoods or, more simply, slums and designs affordable housing. According to the architect, the situation can be noticeably improved by overcoming social barriers, and he proves this in practice through the implementation of his ideas. After the earthquake in Chile, his bureau, for example, proposed building low-rise block houses that could be accessible to the poorest segments of the population. The architect is a member of the Pritzker Prize jury. His works have been exhibited more than once at the Milan Triennial and the Sao Paulo Biennale. 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 by the Venice Architecture Biennale.
