Check-in and pre-Lecture Reception will begin at 6:15 pm in the Hamon Atrium.
Atelier ARS is an architecture and landscape architecture studio whose projects are created with three compelling concepts: the relationship of architecture and landscape architecture with nature, the intrinsic condition of these two disciplines, and their relationships with people. Since Alejandro Guerrero is an architect and Andrea Soto a landscape architect, their projects seamlessly combine those two disciplines. Alejandro has BA and MA degrees in Architecture from ITESO University and the Polytechnic University of Catalonia. He taught architectural design at ITESO and has been a visiting critic at the Harvard GSD. Andrea also graduated from ITESO and has Masters in Landscape Architecture from the Harvard GSD, with an ASLA Award of Distinction. She has lectured at University of British Columbia School of Landscape Architecture, UVA, and the Harvard GSD.
Atelier ARS has received the Emerging Voices award, given by The Architectural League and the Design Vanguard from Architectural Record. Their work has been nominated as a finalist in the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize, the Ibero-American Architecture and Urbanism Biennial, and included for three cycles as part of Mexico’s Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale. Atelier ART also won first prize in the Latin American Biennial of Landscape Architecture. The studio’s Center for Culture and Arts was a Silver Medal winner in this year’s Erich Mendelshon Preis. Alejandro is the author of the book Arquitecturas del Fuego I y II (Architectures of Fire I and II) which amplifies the studio’s focus on history, architecture, and landscape architecture.
