Alexia León (Peruvian, b.1970) and Lucho Marcial (Peruvian, b.1962) of leonmarcial arquitectos (Peru, est.2012)


This installation celebrates the interweaving of households and their environments using architectural means. This requires rethinking together our basic building blocks as drivers of change. Re-interpreting the lines of domestic private property which often restrict one’s notion of households leads to a transformation at the broader, public scale, one which allows for the construction of open structures that provide more equitable and dynamic living opportunities. Interwoven presents a spatial fragment focused on temporal transitions and interactions between households that dissolve outside-inside and public-private boundaries, where people interact and coexist.
