“The persisting social crisis needs to be addressed by revolutionizing the way our society is constructed. A social exchange needs to replace the current relationship between life and capital. We urgently need to reverse the process of societal degradation, and move towards a respectful society of care. Care at its core and then the rest will follow.” —Tatiana Bilbao

 

Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao has donated Social Topography, a unique, signed collage made of cutouts of printed paper gathered from multiple sources. The work represents, according to Bilbao, “the landscape of our times, with power represented by the institution. Ironically, this is a cultural institution, alongside industry, representing capital on top of [everything, both] people and nature.”

 

Bilbao began her eponymous studio in 2004 with the aim of integrating social values, collaboration and sensitive design approaches to architectural work. Her work in affordable housing, and in particular her sustainable housing prototype designed to address Mexico’s housing shortage, is highly acclaimed. The studio’s research-driven approach allows it to design for diverse circumstances, including reconstruction and crisis scenarios. Bilbao’s work has been exhibited in many major museums around the globe, including the Louisiana Museum of Art and the Centre Georges Pompidou. The studio’s work is included in the permanent collections of The Art Institute in Chicago, San Francisco MoMA, and Carnegie Museum of Art, among many others.

 

Bilbao has been recognized with multiple honors, including the Berliner Kunstpreis (2012), the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture by the LOCUS Foundation (2014), an Impact Award from Architizer’s A+ Awards (2017), the Marcus Prize Award (2019), and a Tau Sigma Delta Gold Medal (2020).
