Impromptu: In Conversation with Mathias Klotz

Friday, 19 March 2010-6:30pm

Mathias Klotz Germain was born on April 1965 in Viña del Mar (Chile). In 1991 he graduated as an architect from the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile. He has been awarded numerous awards and has major projects in Chile, Mexico, Italy, Lebanon, China, Uruguay, Argentina, Spain...

"I am interested in belonging to a place… That is what my work is about…
I have no idea if I have found a place, but I think there are some projects that do have one.
The Reutter House has one by climbing up the trees. The Las Niñas Winery has one by illuminating the industrial space with natural light. The Mulchnick House has one by constructing an inhabitable terrace. The Ponce House has one on the River Plate." (From Mathias Klotz website)

This is an informal presentation/talk by Mathias Klotz. This is gonna be a chilled out, after work/study conversation about architecture and Mathias's work. A great way to welcome the weekend!

This was such an event!!! Completely different to Mathias' presentation at the Dean's Lectures Series at the University of Melbourne. It included many of his commercial and educational projects and even a fly-thought send-up, what a treat!!! THANKS MATHIAS!
BTW, this presentation was recorded then if you couldn't come over you can still see it on video. We will let you know when this is ready :)
