"The richness of Chilean architecture is undeniable, which is why incredible projects made in our country could not be missing from this selection. Projects that we love not because of their grandeur, but because of their ability to face the challenges of climate and territory. In addition, in this selection, we include projects in South America and a couple of other surprises." Valentina De Aguirre - Editor, Habitar
