Emerging Voices Lecture Series: cao | perrot Studios & PRODUCTORA

Read Article
Last Thursday, the Architectural League hosted the final lecture in a series featuring the recipients of the 2013 Emerging Voices program. Selected for the promise they have shown in forging unique paths in architecture, the eight firms presented lectures on their personal philosophies last month. Last week’s lecture featured Andy Cao and Xavier Perrot of cao | perrot studio and Carlos Bedoya, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaime, and Abel Perles of PRODUCTORA. Kate Orff, a Vice President of the Arch League, praised the site-specific sense of form in both firms’ works and their unique ability to engage in “direct dialogue with landscape in a fresh way.”

  The A47 Mobile Library by PRODUCTORA was commissioned by a client who wanted to share his collection of art books with the public. Finding the project’s reason for existence (the books) to pose the “main obstacle” in planning, the firm created a striking solution and used them to create a frieze in the truck’s interior.
