Mexico City–based architect Tatiana Bilbao considers domesticity from policy to livability.
Models, drawings, and photographs illustrate Bilbao’s extensive research and proposals in response to how we live today.
At the beginning of the design process, the architect and her firm Tatiana Bilbao Estudio take time to identify less visible external factors that influence and shape architecture, such as developer goals and civic regulations, as well as meeting with future inhabitants.
This “outside in” approach is expansive, but yields greater understanding and accommodation for contemporary lifestyles.
Some of Tatiana Bilbao's architecture appears in this illustration of an imaginary city, and printed on this tote.
