Constructing Practice: MAIO

11 December 2017

Anna Puigjaner and Guillermo López

In the first episode of Constructing Practice, Anna Puigjaner and Guillermo Lopez of Barcelona-based architectural office MAIO talk about their recent projects and interests. Tracing the narratives of young firms from around the globe, the podcast series includes the participants of the Constructing Practice symposium at Columbia GSAPP on November 17, 2017, and expands the conversation to include many others to tell us how they do what they do. Hosted by GSAPP Professor Juan Herreros, principal of Estudio Herreros in Madrid.

Formed in the aftermath of the economic crisis in Spain, MAIO collaborates with artists and practitioners from outside of the field, while rethinking connections between theory and practice, in particular, through models of collective housing.

“We are interested in this idea of understanding the house as a system, as a format, that can change through time, that can enlarge and decrease depending of the needs of their inhabitants.”
—Anna Puigjaner
