Alejandro Urrutia works with the synergies between architectural and sculptural principles. After ten years as an architect he now uses the médium of sculpture to play with how architectural rules can be reinterpreted and transgressed.
He draws on the rich relationship between his two disciplines to generate new perspectives within the forms he creates and to consider how a piece relates within its physical and social context.
