ISABEL MARTINEZ ABASCAL

Isabel was nominated  by Silo Store co-founder and architect FRIer Julieta Benito Sanz. I can see why. Isabel is a dynamic, fun and freethinking architect based in Mexico City. Her work is light, thoughtful and punchy. A humungo thanks Isabel for sharing these favourites with us. You've delivered some juicy ideas here. I need an excuse to hit Mexico City now! 

Enjoy! 

 

 Isabel's Words... 

I am an architect.

I studied in the public universities of Madrid and Berlin. And further on in Ahmedabad, India and São Paulo, Brasil where I was lecturer for six years at the Faculty of Architecture and Urbanism Escola da Cidade. I am absolutely thankful to gorgeous Brasil!

Everything I do, I understand it as architecture.

I have curated arcihtecture and contemporary art shows and I have written for several magazines like Domus, Wallpaper and Avery Review.

In 2014, together with Alessandro Arienzo, I founded the architecture studio LANZA Atelier www.lanzaatelier.com At LANZA we love doing things, a house, a book or an exhibition design, all of them are a chance for experimentating and contributing to the beauty of the world. Working with my partner is a magical creative process. So grateful <3

I have been living in Mexico City since 2015 where I proudly and happily run the platform LIGA, Space for Architecture www-liga-df.com Thank you everybody @LIGA, thank you Mexico!
