Competition: win tickets to Pezo von Ellrichshausen's talk at The Met

Competition: Dezeen has paired up with New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art to offer readers the chance to win one of five pairs of tickets to an intimate talk with Chile-based architects Mauricio Pezo and Sofa von Ellrichshausen.

Congratulations to the winners! Angeline Yang, Andrew Kao, Rob Bundy, Amelia Stein and Andrew Sack.

Taking place on 19 June, the lecture is part of the In Our Time series organised by Beatrice Galilee, the museum's Daniel Brodsky associate curator of architecture and design.

Pezo von Ellrichshausen has established itself as one of Chile's leading contemporary architecture studios over the past 10 years, designing a series of private homes that aim to combine principles of art and architecture.

The duo's recent work includes a dyed-yellow house with no corridors and a residence with 12 split levels arranged around a concrete spiral staircase.

"They have consistently been producing beautiful, intimate and wilful architecture under changing and sometimes volatile economic conditions in Chile and as such represent many of the fantastic young practices that have emerged in Latin America over the past decade," said Galilee.

"I hope they will talk about some of the particular understanding of the relationship between architecture and society that is unique to the climate in which they work," she added.

"There is a thread of small scale, temporary artistic practice that runs through their work too, which I love and is also a way for many young firms to experiment and test their bigger ideas on small scales."

The talk will be followed by a conversation with Felix Burrichter, editor of PIN-UP Magazine.

Dezeen has teamed up with The Metropolitan Museum of Art as media partner for In Our Time – which will also include a talk by Japanese architect Kazuyo Sejima.

The first event in the series took place in May and featured Danish architect Bjarke Ingels, who spoke of his desire to replace Modernism's "boring box" legacy with new kinds of localised architecture.
