‘Housing for people’ by Manuel Cervantes


The Mexican firm Manuel Cervantes studio was invited to participate in the 2021 Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, directed by Dominique Perrault, which, titled ‘Crossroads: Building the Resilient City,’ is ongoing until 31 October at the Dongdaemun Design Plaza museum, a work of Zaha Hadid Architects.

The ‘Thematic Exhibitions’ section includes ‘Housing for people,’ by Manuel Cervantes. The idea of site-specific dwellings may seem obvious, but most housing projects in the world are designed as economic, not human-based, solutions. This small show presents different exercises carried out by the studio, focusing on human solutions applied in the process of assisted self-production.
