SAVE THE DATE: arcVision Prize Women and Architecture Prize-giving ceremony, Thursday, 7 April at 05:30 pm Triennale Milano – Teatro dell’Arte.

Elisa Valero Ramos (Spain)
The not-so-obvious idea that architecture can be a means for responding to deep needs is an idea that substantiates the complex work of Elisa Valero Ramos, providing a criteria for cross-reading her many projects.
