Recorded on March 27, 2014.

Emerging Voices spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, and urbanism.

Founded in 2012 by Salvador Macías Corona and Magui Peredo Arenas, the Guadalajara-based Estudio Macías Peredo focuses on design and construction, embracing a critical regionalism in which the craftsman is part of the building process.

In their lecture, Macías and Peredo discuss the strong influence that the geographic and social conditions in Guadalajara has on their work. Embracing improvisation and imperfection, the firm combines the local and the global to create a timeless architecture that makes the vernacular contemporary.

Macías Peredo’s positioning of their traditional local culture within the contemporary globalized world is evident in projects such as Oficinas Casa Hidalgo, Casa Chacala, and the Pabellón Eco 2013 at the Museo Experimental El Eco.
