Pedro y Juana in Conversation with Paula Vilaplana

CCCP student Paula Vilaplana speaks with Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss, co-founders of Mexico City-based firm Pedro y Juana, following their lecture at the school on February 11, 2019. The duo is also teaching advanced studio VI at GSAPP during the Spring 2019 semester. Their work explores the capacity of objects to change their environment through typological transgressions, the indiscriminate use of material, texture, color, placement, or form. Recently, their installation Hórama Rama won the 2019 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program.

“We like to think that objects also have agency within their environments. How you place the object, or the amount of permission you give the user to change or fix it, actually creates different actions…We’re very much interested in seeing what happens within spaces more than holding on to an idea of how they should be used.” - Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo
