Tatiana Bilbao (b. 1972, Mexico City) researches and interprets the historical culture and building traditions of Mexico as well as each project’s immediate context. The exhibition explores various dimensions of ‘landscape’, which give direction to the studio’s work — from natural or urban scapes to the ‘inner landscape’ of each individual building.

Video of the exhibition

Bilbao’s work is highly diverse and frequently produced in collaboration with other architects, landscape architects and artists: from a pilgrimage route in Mexico via botanical gardens in Culiacán, to housing developments. Her projects are driven by environmental and social thinking, but also by great poetry. As Tatiana Bilbao says: “When you come from a country where many people have very little in the way of economic resources, you are used to not wasting them.”

The exhibition presents large format installations both in the space and outdoors. A landscape of models spans the entire venue, which is lined by ‘cabinets’ filled with samples of raw materials, working models and sketches. Collages produced at Estudio Bilbao relating to various facets of the landscape are shown in a dialogue with exponents from the Architekturzentrum Wien Collection, selected from its 25 years of exhibition history.

At the Opening, Tatiano Bilbao is to talk about her work that provides an insight into the breadth of her approach.

The exhibition is a cooperation with the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebæk, Denmark.
