The fourth and final evening of the annual Emerging Voices lecture series, featuring SITU Studio and Estudio Macías Peredo. 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 design, and urbanism.
SITU Studio, founded by Basar Girit, Aleksey Lukyanov-Cherny, Wes Rozen, and Bradley Samuels in 2005, is committed “to interrogating design ideas through physical and material experimentation at a wide range of scales.” The firm’s Brooklyn-based studio, divided between design and fabrication spaces, enables their goal to “leverage fabrication efficiencies, material re-use, flexible assemblies, and community involvement to create spaces that engage in living relationships with the urban context….” For more on SITU Studio, click here.
Founded in 2012 by Salvador Macías Corona and Magui Peredo Arenas, the Guadalajara-based Estudio Macías Peredo focuses on design and construction, as well as the spreading of architectural culture. Acknowledging “the understanding of our regional situation (geographically and socio-culturally), where [a] craftsman is part of the building process,” the office embraces ideas of critical regionalism.
