Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) is proud to announce an outstanding C+A Talk,  to be held on  July 24 2017

The C+A Talks series operate in conjunction with the iconic C+A magazine, and bring architects of distinction to Australia as CCAA guests to address Australian audiences.

He is the first architect to receive the honour. 

Alejandro Aravena is the Principal Director of the Chilean firm ELEMENTAL S.A,  a "Do Tank" founded in 2001, focusing on projects of public interest and social impact, including housing, public space, infrastructure and transportation. The fundamental approach of ELEMENTAL is based on its participatory design process, in which it works closely with the public and end users.
