the Pritzker Prize Winner Who Builds Half-Finished Homes
Metaphorically speaking, it was a fitting presentation technique for Aravena, who practices what he calls “incremental design.” With this approach, he and the designers at Elemental, his studio, build housing structures that are deliberately unfinished. Consider the Quinta Monroy Housing project, which Aravena worked on in Iquique, Chile, in 2004. Aravena’s team built out the units’ foundations and concrete frames, and left it at that. The approach, he argues, gave future residents a chance to complete their respective units as they saw fit, resulting in culturally appropriate homes that actually look and feel like homes, as opposed to government-issued housing.
