    Alejandro Aravena: X

    Thought people might like to see a few images from the exhibition in our lobby right now. Alejandro's presentation including his work on the Elemental housing project was great.

    Almost weightless paper models are supported by thin metal shelves. A small thread reaches for the wall but hangs suspended and never quite touching due to the magic of magnets.

    A series of 20-30 stereoscopic viewers present 3d images of Aravena's projects with toy giraffes, rhinos, and other animals interspersed as "scale figures."

      He is teaching his third studio this semester, I believe. Don't know if it's still addressing low income housing issues though.
