The fourth and final evening of the annual Emerging Voices lecture series, featuring cao | perrot Studio and PRODUCTORA. Emerging Voices spotlights individuals and firms based in the United States, Canada, or Mexico with distinct design voices and the potential to influence the disciplines of architecture, landscape design, and urbanism.
cao | perrot Studio, led by Andy Cao from Los Angeles (who will be speaking for the office) and Xavier Perrot from Paris, blends art and landscape to create dreamlike “hybrid environments.” For more on cao | perrot Studio, visit http://archleague.org/2013/01/cao-i-perrot-studio/.
Mexico City’s PRODUCTORA, led by Carlos Bedoya, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaime, and Abel Perles, creates architecture that seeks a single “gesture” often exploiting the tension between the partners’ personal interests and the conditions of site, context, program, and client.
