Alejandro Aravena is the Chilean architect who headed the creation of the 'Reporting From The Front' exhibit at the Venice Architecture Biennale 2016 -- two stunning rooms that use close to 100 tons of recycled waste material.

The exhibit was built with the help of contributors David Chipperfield, Tadao Ando, Peter Zumthor and SANAA. Reporting From The Front was created to make other architects at the event think of global issues by understanding their contribution to the levels of waste in the world -- a message that becomes especially clear considering all the recycled waste was taken from the 2015 Venice Art Biennale. The exhibit invites patrons to walk through under a ceiling of massive amounts of hanging scrap metal which is supported by plasterboard walls.
