Elemental is a Do Tank founded in 2001, focusing on projects of public interest and social impact, including housing, public space, infrastructure, and transportation. It integrates Alejandro Aravena, Gonzalo Arteaga, Juan Cerda, Victor Oddó and Diego Torres. A hallmark of the firm is the participatory design process in which the architects work closely with the public and final users.

He has been the most recent laureate of the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2016, and is currently the Director of La Biennale di Venezia 15th International Architecture Exhibition, with the theme Reporting From the Front (2016).
