Architect Felipe Assadi to Kick Off Cersaie's Building Dwelling Thinking

Sassaulo, IT, September 19, 2019-Chilean architect Felipe Assadi will be the first guest in the Cersaie 2019 “Building Dwelling Thinking” cultural program with a conference to be held on September 25 at 10:30 a.m. in the Architecture Gallery.

Since 2011, Assadi has served as dean of the faculty of architecture and design of the Finis Terrae University in Chile. He has taught at a number of different universities in Chile and abroad, including the Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education and the Autonomous University of San Luis Potosí in Mexico, the Pontifical Bolivarian University and the University of the Andes in Colombia, and most recently the IUAV in Venice.

The underlying theme of his work is the use of low-cost materials that are easy to find and transport and can be assembled and disassembled rapidly. Two of his most innovative projects are the “Remote House” in Chile, an 80-square-metre house that can be assembled and disassembled in just six hours, and the “20x20 House,” also in Chile, based on a 20x20 cm ceramic tile module.
