Bellavista Chandelier: A Lamp for the Real Estate Boom House

2018

With Álvaro Carrillo
and Paula Currás
Available for purchase here

The Real Estate Boom House includes a spin-off project, which looks to counter the real-estate-boom aesthetics through the unearthing of under-recognized architectural genealogies and agents edited out from modern disciplinary discourses. My projects attend to notions of craftsmanship and DYI construction such as the production of textiles in domestic space––a gendered form of labor usually overlooked in male-centered architectural narratives. I have worked closely with Maria Lluïsa Blanco, the client, on the production of a curtain prototype developed using ancient bobby lacing techniques to weave high-resistance, state-of-the-art fibers as Dynemaa, used for military equipment.
