Architect Frida Escobedo (b. 1979) combines craftsmanship and technology by using traditional materials in an innovative way.

Each year, the Serpentine Gallery in London chooses an outstanding architect to design a temporary pavilion. The chosen architect in 2018 was Escobedo, whose project used concrete roof tiles as the chief material.

This is how Escobedo describes her dream house: “I imagine it as a contradictory combination, because I love living in the city, but at the same time I very much enjoy looking after my plants and having my own greenspace, even if it’s tiny.”
