This year’s programme starts on 8 February 2018 with Pritzker prize-winning Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, well known not only as an academic and curator of the 15th Venice Biennale, but also for his work as a partner in the architectural firm ELEMENTAL, which produces work that stands out for its unbiased approach and willingness to enter fields they have not yet explored, generating original contributions to peoples’ quality of life.
