On the horizon

  • Comment

Mathias Klotz has created some fine examples of architecture in concrete. While outwardly different, many of his buildings display threads of continuity. One such is his repeated use of a raised linear bar defining a strong horizontal datum against a sloping site, forming a new horizon against which the site can be registered. In his Viejo House in Santiago he handles the weight, roughness and plasticity of concrete in a fresh manner but still brings a sense of mass and gravity that is absent in his other work.Further examples of his work are found in Mathias Klotz (2G S. ), published by Gustavo Gili, £19.50.
