    El Croquis 142 is a monograph on the work of the Spanish architectural practice, Alejandro Aravena, covering their projects from 2008 to 2012. This period saw Aravena and his team continue to explore their signature approach to architecture, which is characterized by its focus on social responsibility and sustainability.

    Aravena’s Architectural Approach:

    • Social Responsibility: Aravena is committed to using architecture to improve the lives of people. He is known for his work on social housing projects, which are designed to be affordable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.
    • Sustainability: Aravena is also committed to sustainable architecture. He often uses recycled materials and passive design techniques to reduce the environmental impact of his buildings.
    • Context: Aravena is also sensitive to context. He often designs his buildings to respond to the specific needs and character of their surroundings.

    Key Projects:

    • Quinta Monroy Housing, Iquique, Chile (2004): This social housing project is one of Aravena’s most famous works. The project was designed to provide affordable housing for low-income families in Iquique, Chile. The project is notable for its innovative use of space, which allows families to expand their homes over time.

    • Capilla de la Soledad, Santiago, Chile (2012): This chapel is a masterpiece of Aravena’s use of light and space. The chapel is built from concrete and glass, and its interior is flooded with natural light. The chapel is also notable for its simplicity and austerity, which reflect Aravena’s commitment to social responsibility.

    • Parque Biblioteca Gabriel García Márquez, Medellín, Colombia (2010): This library and park complex is a testament to Aravena’s commitment to sustainability. The complex is built from recycled materials and features passive design techniques that reduce its energy consumption. The park is also notable for its vibrant public spaces, which encourage community engagement.

    A Legacy of Social Impact:

    El Croquis 142 is a celebration of the socially-conscious work of Alejandro Aravena. The monograph provides a comprehensive overview of his career, from his early beginnings to his most recent projects. Through detailed project descriptions, stunning photographs, and insightful essays, the monograph offers a deep understanding of Aravena’s architectural approach and the significance of his work.
