| Catalogue accompanying the Chilean Pavilion at the International Architecture Exhibition in Venice
Against the Tide, the Chilean Pavilion at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, exhibits the work of a generation of young architects who have conceived, financed, designed, and constructed small-scale architecture in order to obtain their professional degree in the field. They have built with a minimum of resources, with the residue of agricultural processes, and with local materials easily available in a rural environment. This catalogue contains the fifteen projects chosen for the exhibition, with texts by different authors that examine these architects’ training and the customs of a territory both anodyne and extraordinary. Against the Tide speaks to the contrary direction in which some things move. It puts the accent on the customs and landscape of a rural world of forestry and agriculture, helping to improve the everyday lives of people through architecture.
