TEQUIO
In 2008, a chance meeting embarked me on my first practice as an architect on the field. A group of otomí women, indigenous to a region close to Mexico City, had earned a grant and they had wished to build a Community Center that could harbour their artisanal activities. Throughout the next 2 years, I collaborated with them as we developed a participative process to design and construct the building.
