The new video from the Time-Space-Existence series produced by PLANE–SITE features Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao with an interview in her office and sequences from Mexico City. Bilbao explains her approach, where a new project is not about “the form or the shape of a building, but is about what it does to people.”

She discusses her design philosophy, the role of the architect in society and how a building can enhance human life. She also points out the necessity for intricate hand-work and locally sourced materials, keeping in mind the needs of construction workers and maintenance workers. The video has been commissioned by the GAA Foundation and funded by the ECC (European Cultural Center) and will be featured within the “Time-Space-Existence” exhibition at the next Architecture Biennale in Venice.
