He is especially known for this many small-scale projects, such as dwellings and installation designs that connect various cultural traditions. Here, his House for the Poem of the Right Angle (Vilches, Chile) and Red Stone House (Santiago, Chile) are portrayed in a remarkable series of photographs by Yoshio Futagawa, who also contributes a descriptive text. Together, the two houses reflect the rich properties of Radic’s varied spaces, formed through carefully constructed relationships with the surroundings.
