Tatiana Bilbao

Through a multicultural and multidisciplinary office, the work of Tatiana Bilbao tries to understand the place that surrounds us in order to translate its rigid codes into architecture. It tries to regenerate spaces in order to humanize them as a reaction to global capitalism, opening up niches for cultural and economic development.

Her work includes a Botanical Garden, a master plan and open chapel for a Pilgrimage Route, a Biotechnological Center for a Tech Institution, a house that is built with 8,000 USD, and a Funeral Home.

Tatiana was the recipient of the Kunstpries Berlin in 2012, the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture Prize in 2014 and named as Emerging Voice by the Architecture League of NY in 2009. Her work is part of the collection of the Centre George Pompidou in Paris, France, the Carnegie Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago. Bilbao has been visiting professor at Yale School of Architecture and Rice School of Architecture. Her work has been published in A+U, Domus and The New York Times, among others.
