Ciudad Abierta

Mixed media Collage

Research and Design |  1997-1999  |  Massachusetts Institute of Technology

These hand-crafted collaged images were the result of my Graduate thesis at MIT. Collectively they compose a 24’ long collage that combined text and image as I attempted to capture my pedagogical research and physical exploration of the experimental school of Architecture of Ciudad Abierta in Ritoque Chile – A unique Architecture school was founded in 1952 by the architect Alberto Cruz and the poet Godofredo Iomi with the intention to explore the relationship between poetry and architecture.
