Amancio Williams, la película


Figura fundamental de la Arquitectura Argentina. Reconocido y admirado en todo el mundo por la célebre “Casa sobre el arroyo”, obra clave de la arquitectura moderna que terminara en ruinas luego de un incendio.

El documental narra la vida, la obra y los proyectos más emblemáticos del arquitecto Amancio Williams. Sus ideas y propuestas innovadoras, su tenacidad por recuperar espacios verdes. La relación con Le Corbusier y su aporte en la Casa Curutchet. La filosofía del arquitecto y el carácter del hombre del cual gran parte de sus proyectos no llegaron a concretarse.

Amancio Williams (19 de febrero de 1913 – 14 de octubre de 1989). Nació en la ciudad de Buenos Aires. Su padre era el músico Alberto Williams. A los 18 años ingresó a la Facultad de Ingeniería de la UBA, dejándola tres años más tarde para dedicarse a la aviación. En 1938 ingresó a la Facultad de Arquitectura de la UBA de la cual egresó en 1941. Es considerado uno de los más importantes arquitectos del siglo XX, destacándose por el carácter de sus proyectos, la claridad conceptual y la profunda investigación en torno a ellos para el uso de la técnica y los materiales. Sin embargo pocos de sus proyectos fueron realizados. Uno de ellos fue la “Casa sobre el arroyo” en la Ciudad de Mar del Plata, la cual diseñó para su padre y fue construida entre 1943 y 1945, considerada obra emblemática de la arquitectura moderna.

En 1949 se hizo cargo de la dirección del único proyecto en Sudamérica del reconocido arquitecto suizo-francés Le Corbusier, la Casa Curutchet (ubicada en la ciudad de La Plata). Realizó distintos proyectos que fueron expuestos en todo el mundo, recibiendo reconocimiento por parte de sus colegas y círculos especializados. Algunos de sus proyectos nunca realizados son: Sala Para Espectáculo Plástico y Sonido En El Espacio, Edificio Suspendido de Oficinas, La Primera Ciudad en La Antártida, Aeropuerto de Buenos Aires, Hospitales para la Ciudad de Corrientes, La Ciudad que necesita la humanidad, entre otras.

Amancio Williams es reconocido por difundir los ideales del movimiento moderno. También formó parte de la Academia Nacional de Bellas Artes y recibió un premio de la Fundación Konex en 1982.
