The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture: The Chilean Example is the new webinar promoted by the Chamber of Architects of the Province of Milan, to be held on Thursday, 25th November, 6:00-8:00 pm
After the first and second cycle of four online meetings on the Swiss, Finnish, British and Danish examples, held in October 2020 and in February 2021, the cycle continued with an evening on Spanish architecture on 11th November.
The initiative is promoted by the Foundation of the Chamber of Architects of the Province of Milan and curated by the architect Arianna Callocchia. Its goal is to continue to highlight the role and the importance that women play in contemporary architecture, creating an opportunity for dialogue and professional exchange between the Italian and the international scene.
During the online meeting on 25th November “The Contribution of Women in Contemporary Architecture: The Chilean Example“, the designers themselves will illustrate some projects recently completed in Chile. These works exemplify their design philosophy in contemporary architecture with respect to environmental sustainability, the social sphere, technological innovation, building redevelopment, the relationship with the territory.
After the welcome remarks by Beatrice Costa, Director of the Foundation of the Chamber of Architects of the Province of Milan, and Konrad Paulsen, Cultural Councilor, Embassy of Chile in Italy, the floor will be given to Antonia Lehmann, Studio Izquierdo Lehmann (Santiago), and to Loreto Lyon, Studio Beals Lyon Arquitectos (Santiago). Antonia Lehmann, the first Chilean woman to receive the “National Prize of Architecture of Chile” in 2004, will illustrate some projects built in Santiago de Chile and on the Pacific coast of Chile; Loreto Lyon will present a selection of projects, public and private, significant for their dialogue with the natural and built territory. The meeting will be moderated by the architect Lorena Verónica Zúñiga Aguilera.
The conference is organized with the Patronage of the Chamber of Architects P.P.C. of the Province of Milan, the Italian Council of Architects, the UIA “International Women in Architecture” Committee, the Embassy of Chile in Italy, the Directorate of Cultural Affairs of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Chile, ProChile, Colegio de Arquitectos de Chile A.G and AOA – Asociación de Oficinas de Arquitectos.
The conference will be held also thanks to the contribution of ATLAX, a leading Italian company specializing in the production of lightweight reinforced concrete plate slabs, thanks to which design no longer has any constraints and the designer can arrange the space with aesthetically daring solutions meeting technical requirements of functionality and safety.
