Rozana Montiel in Conversation with Luiza Furia

Luiza Furia, a first year M.Arch student at Columbia GSAPP, speaks with Mexican architect Rozana Montiel, founder of Rozana Montiel - Estudio de Arquitectura, on the occasion of her lecture on January 22, 2018.

They discuss how to engage local communities, the politics of architecture, and the questions young architects should ask when taking on a project. Montiel also touches on the Albino Ortega house, and creating a space designed for reflection.

“Architecture is not only the brick construction but it’s a social construction. If you don’t pay attention to people’s needs, then you’re not engaging any type of architecture…. If people engage, they feel ownership”
—Rozana Montiel
