This is the first Italian monograph devoted to one of the emerging figures in contemporary architecture, the Chilean Mathias Klotz.
[Mathias Klotz /Works and Projects] Through a reading of the landscape and the topographical structure, Mathias Klotz implements his architectural programme with plastic sensitivity, confirming the importance of the construction and the materials. After completing his studies at the Catholic University of Santiago in Chile, in 1991, Mathias Klotz (born in Santiago, in 1965) embarked on a brilliant career that has brought him to the attention of international critics who regard him as one of the best architects of the younger generations. His reference models range from those of Mies van der Rohe and of those architects active in California after World War II. The Ponce house in Buenos Aires is one of the best expressions of his talent, which shows his skill as an architect who is coherent in his choice of materials, confident in employing them and overt in exhibiting them.
