My architecture has been focused on the search for a language of contemporary forms appropriate to the territory of Chile, forms that are confused with the territory, rather than building, emergency calls for balance, the present.

Latin America has something to say to the world: we must inhabit almost without leaving a mark on the territory using a Low Tech posture, inhabit in a light and precarious way, construct signs in the territory, which inaugurate a contemporary cultural landscape inhabited by the astral man, a miscegenation between the dinosaic of the indigenous world and the opaline of the conqueror who comes from Europe.


The territory is to America, as the monuments are to Europe.
