Bravo will travel to dozens of sites in South America, Asia, and Africa to ultimately develop strategies that integrate vernacular, collective practices with the modern architectural project.</p></em><br /><br /><p>In&nbsp;his Wheelwright proposal, Samuel Bravo focuses on traditional architectures and informal settlements, revisiting the topic of &ldquo;architecture without architects&rdquo;, as described by Bernard Rudofsky in the 1964 Museum of Modern Art exhibition.</p><p>An alumnus of the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, Bravo leads his own practice and has realized multiple projects throughout South America. Here are a few of his previous collaborative works:</p><p><img title="" alt="" src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/ao/ao9y1ha8wtkiy4kq.jpg"><em>ANI NII SH&Ouml;BO, Acayali, Per&uacute;. 2009.
