AP205 Amancio Williams: Readings of the Archive by Studio Muoto, Claudia Shmidt, and Pezo von Ellrichshausen

Publication, 2024

AP205 Amancio Williams is dedicated to the work of Argentinian architect Amancio Williams (1913‒1989), one of the key figures of modern architecture in Latin America. The vast output of projects and proposals produced by his office from the 1940s‒1980s is evidenced through an expansive archive of drawings, photographs, correspondence, and models, donated to the Canadian Centre for Architecture by the Williams family in 2020. The publication features research by Studio Muoto, Claudia Shmidt, and Pezo von Ellrichshausen, who each possess distinct backgrounds in architectural practice and history. Together, their readings present new and expanded understandings of Williams’s work, and situate the social, material, and political dimensions of his practice within contemporary architecture discourse.
