International Architect Tatiana Bilbao Lectures
November 9, 2015 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pmNo cost
Tatiana Bilbao, international architect and founder of ESTUDIO, will present a lecture, “Aftermath,” as part of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Architecture and Design’s Church Lecture Series.
The lecture will be held Monday, Nov. 9, at 5:30 p.m., in McCarty Auditorium in the Art and Architecture Building, 1715 Volunteer Boulevard.
Through her multicultural and multidisciplinary office located in Mexico City, Bilbao tries to understand the place that surrounds us to translate its rigid codes into architecture. Her lecture will explore ways to regenerate spaces to humanize them as a reaction to global capitalism, opening up niches for cultural and economic development.
Bilbao’s wide variety of work includes the Culiacan Botanical Garden in Mexico; a master plan and open chapel for a pilgrimage route; the Monterrey Institute of Technology’s biotechnology center, Bioinnova; a sustainable house that was built with $5,000 to address Mexico’s housing shortage; and a funeral home.
Bilbao was the recipient of Kunstpries Berlin in 2012 and the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture Prize in 2013 and named as Emerging Voice by the Architecture League of New York in 2009. Her work is part of the collection of the Centre George Pompidou in Paris, France, and The Heinz Architectural Center Carnegie Museum of Art. She is currently a visiting professor at Yale School of Architecture and has been published in A+U, Domus and The New York Times, among others.
