Innovation is very much needed in every field as standard practice becomes obsolete or unable to offer the proper answers. But challenging the status quo is not necessarily an easy task.
In this talk, Debora will explain how her firm, Ensamble Studio, pushes the boundaries of Architecture from different fronts; using ingenuity and discovering untapped opportunities in the contexts they interact with.
An itinerary through some of their works, will reflect on how architecture can serve as an active instrument to expand, question, and overcome the norm; evidencing the risks implied in moving away from conventions and established methods to explore spatial, material, technological, typological… potentialities; and the added difficulty of navigating legal frameworks, defining alternative rules, getting other key agents involved, and proving the end result was worth this process.
