More designers in Santiago, Chile
Smiljan Radic Clarke (Santiago de Chile, 1965) graduated from the Catholic University of Chile in 1989 and undertook further studies at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia, Italy. He travelled for three years and finally opened his own architecture firm in Chile in 1995. He was selected as the best architect under 35 by the College of Architects of Chile in 2001; he was given the Architectural Record’s Design Vanguard award in 2008; named honorary member of the American Institute of Architects, USA, in 2009; given the award for best career, 2013 and the award for best Chilean Building in 2015 by Universidad Mayor de Chile, in 2015 the Oris Award, Croatia. The work of Smiljan Radic moves freely across boundaries, avoiding any specific categorisation within one field of architecture. He studies different materials, their sensory and social conditions, rebuilding stories which seem to have been associated with the materials, and always in close collaboration with the sculptor Marcela Correa. He currently lives and works in Chile.
Smiljan Radic is an architectural practice based in Santiago, Chile.
