Food production is lagging behind global population growth, due to increasing demand and flat crop yields. One obvious answer to the question of increased agricultural efficiency is new technology. In today’s farm country, drones map fields, software locates underground water and sets plans for planting, and tractors are loaded with electronic gear.

My architectural philosophy? by Alejandro Aravena
Static Preview

Alejandro Aravena: My architectural philosophy? Bring the community into the process.

When asked to build housing for 100 families in Chile ten years ago, Alejandro Aravena looked to an unusual inspiration: the wisdom of favelas and slums. Rather than building a large building with small units, he built flexible half-homes that each family could expand on. It was a complex problem, but with a simple solution — one that he arrived at by working with the families themselves. With a chalkboard and beautiful images of his designs, Aravena walks us through three projects where clever rethinking led to beautiful design with great benefit.
