How can we inhabit densely populated cities without losing the sense of community that people need? Where is the boundary between the public and private spheres? How can architecture contribute to establishing the incentives needed to preserve the social link that makes us evolve as a society?
Tatiana Bilbao, from Mexico, is a relevant figure of the thriving Latin American school. Her work seeks to “understand architecture from a multicultural and multidisciplinary approach favouring the creation of humanized spaces that react to global capitalism, with the aim of opening niches for cultural and economic development”. With that idea in mind, she has created spaces such as the Botanic Gardens of Culiacán, the Master Plan and Gratitude Chapel in Jalisco's Pilgrimage Route, or the new building of the University of Monterrey (UDEM).
Tatiana has received the following awards: “emerging voice” by the Architecture League of New York in 2010, “Kunstpreis Berlin” in 2012, “Global Award for Sustainable Architecture Prize” by the LOCUS Foundation in 2014 and most recently, “Marcus Prize Award” in 2019. At 47 years of age, she has extensive teaching experience as visiting professor at the Universities of Rice, Columbia, Yale and Harvard.
