Please join us for the new SCIAME Global Spotlight Lecture Series, titled Far South. Curated by Associate Professor Fabian Llonch the series features prominent architects from South America who will discuss their work and the unique political and environmental challenges they face. The third lecture of this series, entitled “Our Construction,” will be presented by Gloria Cabral, a Paraguayan architect and partner at Gabinete de Arquitectura in Asuncion. Along with Solano Benitez, they research architecture’s role in the construction of society.
