Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 1954; lives and works in Buenos Aires, Argentina

The immeasurable South American landscape challenges me to set limits and demarcate a territory. My designs are based on my interest in the human body—male and female bones and muscles adjusting to a space, and leaving a trace in their absence. It is this space of contact that I wish to apprehend and materialize. I approach the urban or landscape scale by designing units of association, designs that integrate the expansive skin of the city with their human users. I think in terms of “use” and not of “object,” thinking of design as a verb—relax, take refuge, reunite—and from an anthropological point of view. My process is nurtured by travels throughout my country, photographic surveys of sites that, through their cultural, geographic, or social content, nourish my intuition and shelter my thoughts under the umbrella of “dwelling.” I design in order to inhabit the natural and urban landscape, but at the same time, to play a game of mirrors: the landscape inhabits me.
