PREMIO INTERNAZIONALE BIENNALE DI PISA

INTERNATIONAL AWARD BIENNALE DI PISA

Corvalán, paraguayano, è autore di architetture sensibili verso i contesti. Il concetto strutturale, la forma, la relazione con l’ambiente, sono elementi strettamente connessi nei progetti di Corvalán, autore di molte abitazioni dalle strutture apparentemente semplici, ma in realtà molto ardite (tra queste casa Hamaca, casa Surubì, Casa Sotoportego).
