A few weeks ago the Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena received the 2016 Pritzker Prize. It is the first time that a Chilean architect receives the prize, despite the fact that it is a country that has consistently made valuable contributions to world architecture. But perhaps the most aspect of the award is the recognition of a type of architecture that puts its sights on the essentials of this art: a simple, uncomplicated use of materials, the mutual understanding of the work and its surroundings and focus on the user of each project.

We approach the works of Aravena to discover a use of wood (wood inner linings, wood ceilings and walls, and wood panels) which is perfect in combination with other materials.

As specialists in the manufacture of wood inner linings, at Spigogroup we wanted to highlight some of the works of Alejandro Aravena where we found our favourite material: wood.
