Mexico City-based architecture office Tatiana Bilbao Estudio presents and immersive installation that transforms a former domestic space to explore new forms of collectivity.

Featuring a collaboration with Sweet Water Foundation and projects by Archeworks, Colectivo 1050˚, Cultural Reproducers, Fieldwork Collaborative Projects, Stefan Gruber, Nance Klehm of Social Ecologies, and The Weaving Mill, among others.

Tatiana Bilbao founded her eponymous studio in 2004, where her work analyzes its immediate context, creating architecture through a multidisciplinary perspective. The studio’s work ranges from masterplans to an affordable sustainable house typology. She has taught as a visiting professor at the Yale School of Architecture, Harvard GSD and Columbia GSAPP.

Tatiana Bilbao Estudio’s architectural work includes: the Culiacán Botanical Garden; the Pilgrimage Route in Jalisco; the Biotechnological Center; the Sustainable House, the social housing prototype displayed at the 2015 Chicago Biennial that costs under $8,000. Tatiana’s work has been recognized internationally with awards such as the Kunstpreis Berlin in 2012 and the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture in 2014 and published in A+U, GA Houses, Domus, and The New York Times, among others.

This exhibition is presented in partnership with the 2019 Chicago Architecture Biennial.
