Product description

The architecture of José Cruz Ovalle is presented extensively in the book – 18 buildings completed between 1992 and 2007. In addition to his wood buildings, the book also contains significant concrete buildings in which wood has been used in the interior and for special details.
Among the private houses included in the book are Cruz’s own home and studio as well as houses in Qinchamali and Valle Escondido. The public buildings include the Chilean Pavilion for the Seville Expo’ 92, Adolfo Ibañez University buildings and the Explora hotels in Patagonia and on Easter Island. Among the industrial buildings presented are the Centromaderas factory and office buildings and the Pérez Cruz and Los Robles vineyard cellars.
The projects are presented from different aspects, with texts and sketches by Pérez Cruz and magnificent photographs, taken mainly by architect Juan Purcell, as well as plans and sections. The meditative texts and enchantingly beautiful images open a view into the unique buildings of a master of wooden architecture and through them into the rich architecture of Chile.
