The figure of the client is fundamental because, as I said earlier, “the house is the construction of being”. Zegers’ architectural forms are generated by the relationship between poetry and architecture, with great zgers paid to the relationships between ways of life, materials and construction. Cazu Zegers, Hotel del VientoPatagonia.


Wood is the predominant material — as in the Casa Taller Cubo at Kawelluco and the Casa Cala at Lago Ranco — and the traditional constructional techniques of Chilean carpenters make these spaces extremely natural and comfortable. What do you see as the key values in your design work? Thank you for registering to the newsletter. I’ve invented a method named Thesis of the Territorywhich is the encounter between the poetic word and the territory, a place in which the equivalence between gesture and sign is cazy, the embryo of a new creation.

On the one hand, there is the inspiration offered by the poetic work zegesr determines form and which derives from the natural elements present in the places in which we work; for example, in the case of the hotel, the poetic word spelt: The same is true of concrete; the recurrent curved forms I use are obtained through moulds made ccazu very cazzu ways. The difficulty is always represented by the control of scale in the territory; that is to say, how to avoid competing with the natural beauty of the place, while at the same time managing not to be absorbed by the landscape.

It’s precisely this that interests me in architecture.

The house was designed as a vacation home for a family, its extended relatives, and friends, so it spans a significant sq m. I’ve invented a method named Thesis of the Territory, which is the encounter between the poetic word and the territory, a place in which the equivalence between gesture and sign is produced, the embryo of a new creation.

In parallel with your design work you have always been involved in teaching, especially organizing numerous workshops and encounters with students.

Among these some are differentiated by a natural element to which attention is drawn, such as the Casa del Fuocothe Casa del Aquathe Casa del Silenziothe Casa della Luna and the Casa Calafor which you received a prize at the Buenos Aires Biennale of Architecture in My architecture, based on the relationship between poetry and the South American territory, is intended to introduce its own idiom.

The two questions are complementary, because my architecture is born out of and is based on the Amereida concept.

The concept introduces the figure of a Christopher Columbus who, during the voyage that was to lead him to the Indies, saw the American continent, which “appeared” to him as a gift. During your career, to what extent have you been influenced by the idea of ciudad abierta conceived and promoted by Amereidaan association founded in your Valparaiso university? Architecture is an art that develops in space and consequently is three-dimensional. Are there any other opportunities for young designers to emerge and promote experimentation and architectural innovation in Chile?

It is the driving wind that determines the topography of the place and the landscape. He calls it the Regiona territory that, once named, becomes landscape and place zegerrs which life unfolds and on which is based the culture of a people.

Concrete is an honest material that I’m accustomed to working with in a certain way, without ever rendering or covering it. I usually employ local materials. Consequently, approaches such as building in an ephemeral fashion practically without leaving traces, or reconstructing without forcing the building to lose value, or making the landscape resonant so that it conserves the memory of what once existed is without doubt a path to be followed.


And among them, do any names in particular come to mind? I’m thinking in particular of the Hotel del Viento which sits poetically between vazu and sky, establishing a dialogue between the distant line of the horizon and human scale. Anticipating what will come and reflecting in order to give the most appropriate response, without ever losing sight of the value inherent to the places in which they work.

Your personal details will not be shared with those companies – we send the emails and you can unsubscribe at any time. So you know the younger generations of designers, in particular the Chileans.

This way, the concept incites us to build, in this new territory, a language of forms that is longer the cazuu of imitation. The architect used a mix of local and contemporary architectural languages. I believe that the relationship with the territory — and with the powerful landscape in which all we Chileans are immersed — is what makes us more open to contemplation and the poetic.

The concrete used at Los Vilos derives from the fact that it was cazj house facing the sea and so maintenance was an issue that could not be ignored during the design phase.

The other difficulty is constituted by more remote questions, such as budgets that never allow room for manoeuvre. The work therefore becomes a focus of multiple relationships that respond to the client’s requirements in a poetic and original fashion.
