Smiljan Radic is famous for his architectural designs, but especially for one attention-drawing coup: in 2014, his Serpentine, designed to look like a gigantic stone, astonished visitors. This building was in no way his first stroke of genius, however. Radic has long been a superstar in his home country of Chile, thanks to numerous small and large projects such as the regional theater Biobio or the house he dedicated to Le Cobusier's Poeme de l'angle droit. Using minimal means, he creates extraordinary spaces. His architectural structures are like sculptures that respond to their environments. Obra Gruesa/Rough Work presents twenty-four key works produced between 1990 and 2015. Richly illustrated, with countless conceptual sketches and construction drawings, this edition contains two new essays by Moises Puente and the famous Swiss curator Hans Ulrich Obrist.

English and Spanish.
