Dallas Architecture Forum Lecture: Magui PEREDO
All Lectures will occur at 7 pm. and will be presented virtually on the scheduled date. Check-in and Reception - 6:15 pm
Magui Peredo is a founding partner of Estudio Macias Peredo, based in Guadalajara, Mexico. The studio has developed a method of observation to understand the current problems and needs of cities and global architecture. They conceive each intervention as a project that draws on the conditions and resources of its situation and context. The studio produces work that emphasizes the construction of projects being closely linked to manual work – craft and hand work are very common in the population of Mexico. The studio seeks to align their work with the environment and pursue ways for handworkers to participate in the building process.
Estudio Macias Peredo has presented numerous lectures and forums on their professional practice in different universities in Mexico and abroad. The studio has won several awards, including the Emerging Voices prize by The Architectural League in New York; finalist in the 2018 Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize Competition; and participated in the Mexico pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2020. Ms. Peredo has been a guest critic and lecturer at a number of universities. Since 2010 she has been a Project workshop professor at ITESO in Guadalajara. She received the CEMEX award in 2018.
