Guggenheim

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.”
