  • description

  • Latin America is a vast, vibrant, diverse and fascinating continent, qualities reflected in its peoples, geography, culture, and, of course, its architecture. This striking book presents a survey of the 50 best houses from across Latin America, showcasing a wide range of architectural styles, philosophies and designs from both well-established and up and coming Latin American architects such as Una Arquitectos, BAK Arquitectos, and Javier Corvalán. All of the firms and practices featured have their own unique vision of how to approach the extremely varied locations offered by the continent, and the best way to translate domestic ideals and fantasies into excellent built work. Each house is documented comprehensively with detailed photography, sections and plans, and placed into context by descriptive texts written by respected architectural critics to give readers a privileged look at the best of Latin American domestic architecture.

  • Sergio E. Daniszewski –architect FADU-UBA (School of Architecture, Design and Urbanism, University of Buenos Aires) – was born on March 19, 1982 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was only 12 years old when he already showed signs of his interest in the field of communication, creating a local magazine together with his brothers. In year 2001 he entered the School of Architecture and Urbanism of the University of Buenos Aires, following his passion for architecture. This, however, was not his only motivation. His interest in trekking and nature led him to found an adventure tourism agency in 2002 and it awoke his entrepreneurial profile, which he continued developing through his attendance to many courses. Always searching for new projects, there was one in particular that he had been thinking about for some time: creating a new look on architecture’s highlights, making the most of the reach of a means of communication. In year 2005 he managed to materialize his idea together with designer Andrés Agosin and architect Luis Corrales by founding 1:100 magazine, which later became a publishing house, issuing books on architecture and design as well as organizing conferences, festivals and exhibitions in different countries. Editor and commercial director of 1:100, he has participated as speaker and exhibitor in different national and international biennales, meeting important architects and extending the publisher’s frontiers: from South America to the world.

    Andres Agosin. is a Graphic Designer, graduated at the UBA University, Buenos Aires. He was a professor for five years in that same University, in the subject of Design 2, corresponding to Gabriele Professorship. Andres starts to paint and illustrate with more emphasis from 2004 on, after founding Magazine GOOO (Illustration). Then he starts to illustrate more often and to participate more in the world of arts, meeting other artists and referents, and finding what he liked facing a white sheet of paper. His work has been published by several publishing houses in different countries such as Chile, Brazil, Spain, England and Mexico. He has been lecturer in events as the Latin American meeting of Design, and in the Character design (Palermo University, Argentina), the Pechacucha Night in Konex Cultural Center, Urban Arts (Bs. As., Design, Argentina), and exhibitor in other events such as Trimarchi and International Biennials of Architecture in Argentina, Chile and Italy. Nowadays, he is Art Director and founder of two other publications: Magazine 1:100 (Architecture) and Porco Mag (Illustration).
