Cecilia Puga belongs, along with Smiljan Radic, Alejandro Aravena and Pezo von Ellrichshausen, to a new generation of Chilean architects who from their peripheral situation address concerns that are very much in keeping with certain avenues explored by European architecture. Cecilia Puga's work responds to the wide range of commissions she has had (from single-family to communal housing and educational institutions), and proceeds from an optimistic attitude that does not, for all that, overlook such fundamental issues as the relationship between building and ground surface or the dialogue between mass in suspension and its stability.
House in Bahía Azul is probably Cecilia Puga's most internationally acclaimed work. Visit the house through this film by 0300TV.
