EMERGING VOICE 2013
Mexico City’s PRODUCTORA creates architecture that seeks a single “gesture,” often exploiting the tension between the partners’ personal interests and the demands of site, context, program, and client. Setting its research in formal, spatial, and tectonic systems in opposition to a project’s conditions, the firm frequently uses wit or play to find fresh solutions to design challenges. In addition to designing homes throughout Mexico, the firm recently completed the Call Center Churubusco in Mexico City and has entered numerous international competitions for public buildings. The office is led by Carlos Bedoya, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaime, and Abel Perles.
Carlos Bedoya received a M.Arch from ETSAB (Barcelona) and has taught at Tec de Monterrey (Mexico City) and Universidad Iberoamericana. Wonne Ickx received a Master of Urbanism and Development from the University of Guadalajara and has taught at the University of California Los Angeles, Universidad Iberoamericana, Centro de Diseño (Mexico City), Universidad La Salle (Mexico City), and the Academy of Architecture (Amsterdam). Victor Jaime studied architecture at the Universidad Iberoamericana and has taught at the Centro de Diseño (Mexico City). Abel Perles studied architecture at the University of Buenos Aires. The office’s work has been exhibited at the 2006 Beijing Biennale and the 2008 Venice Biennale. They are additionally 2007 winners of the Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. See more of their work at productora-df.com.mx.
Carlos Bedoya, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaime, and Abel Perles will be presenting their work on Thursday, March 28th, as part of the Emerging Voices 2013 lecture series.
