Mathias Klotz is a Chilean Architect. Having graduated from the Pontificia Universidad Católica, throughout his career he has combined academic work with projects run from his studio. He has led workshops and given seminars for pre and post-graduate students at different universities in Chile and overseas. In 2003 he was named Dean of the Faculty of Architecture, Art and Design at the Universidad Diego Portales.

His work is firmly rooted in modern architecture and over his career he has developed a distinctive language, with his own themes and typologies. He has won international recognition in numerous publications, speeches and exhibitions.

Among his most important awards and honours are the Premio Borromini de Arquitectura in 2001 in the category Architects under 40, and the Green Good Design Award in 2010 with the Central Library for the Universidad Diego Portales, which also won a Holcim Award in 2011. In 2014 he won the Rogelio Salmona Award for Latin American Architecture for Barrio Universitario de Santiago (BUS) together with Ricardo Abuauad and in 2015 he won an Award for Institutional Contribution to Architecture given by the Asociación de Oficinas de Arquitectura de Chile.
