mexican architect tatiana bilbao to exhibit future projects and behind-the-scenes processes

denmark’s louisiana museum of modern art is set to present the third exhibition in its series ‘the architect’s studio’. the ongoing series presents a succession of contemporary designers and their work with sustainable, socially aware architecture addressing the challenges of globalization. this fall the museum will feature tatiana bilbao, the mexican architect who represents a generation of architects aspiring to much more than simply creating good architecture. from october 18, 2019 to february 9, 2020, visitors will observe the behind-the-scenes processes, ideas, working methods and philosophies which drove each project to explore current demarcations of the field of architecture.

the work of tatiana bilbao estudio, to exhibit at louisiana museum of modern art in denmark, can be categorized into two types: projects with economic and experimental design opportunities to develop an architectural vocabulary, and those driven by a limited budget and are often not for profit, such as social housing in mexico. the knowledge bilbao had gained from the more traditional tasks was used to create necessary sustainable solutions. through her practice, bilbao has addressed a wealth of initiatives to the mexican state, which is responsible for ensuring all mexicans their constitutional right to a home.

bilbao’s work is often based in simple geometry, an approach which easily communicates architectural principles to builders in mexico. unlike parametric design which is generated with the aid of algorithmic programming, fundamental geometries can be drawn by hand. through both the design process and presentation, bilbao works with paper collages in an analogue approach to a profession that is otherwise dominated today by digital renderings.

the exhibition will be organized in three sections. the first takes its point of departure in the mexican culture and landscape that form the background for bilbao’s work, after which the process and method of the drawing office are introduced. the third section shows full-size installations based on works that illustrate the use of geometry, materials and landscape. the examples include the botanical garden in culiacan and a new aquarium and research centre in mazatlán.

 

‘the architect’s studio, tatiana bilbao estudio’ will run from october 18, 2019 to february 9, 2020.
