Concepción Arenal 4228, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Founded in 2011, Monoambiente is an experimental space committed to the development of architecture and contemporary design. The exhibitions, actions, and programs carried out under its auspices further the material and spatial language of both disciplines. The intention is to make a contribution that operates on conceptual, material, and profesional levels, encouraging engagement and dialogue between architects, designers, students, and the general public.

Amancio Williams 2.0.


A living archive by the Amancio Williams Archive and Monoambiente Gallery.
Amancio Williams 2.0 project creates a living archive that works as a platform for critical thinking inspired by the works of Amancio Williams.

Many institutions focused on the preservation of architectural archives concentrate their efforts on the communication of the documents in their collections. Unfortunately, not all of them have a platform where the material is readily available.

The architect Amancio Williams and his legacy are part of Argentina’s cultural heritage. The content of the archive is important to anyone interested in architecture and in the history of South American Modernist thinkers.

By developing a new website, Monoambiente Gallery together with Williams Archive attempts to create a living archive that will constitute a novel way of organizing and approaching documentation, a system on which documents can circulate in a dynamic fashion, and inspire new projects.

The project is particularly concerned with making a contribution to the community of institutions and individuals working in the fields of architecture, design, history, and culture on both the local and the international levels.
