DESIGN INDABA INTERVIEW TO CLARA MARHLÓ
Clara talks about how to adapt architecture to better suit society's needs
OUR DESIGN INDABA TED TALK IS NOW ONLINE!
The presentation that Clara Marhló made in Southafrica last February just got released online.
Clara Mar Hernández López approaches her work differently. The Spanish designer and architect – an alumnus of renowned institutes such as the University of Seville, Eindhoven University of Technology, and the Rhode Island School of Design – is a proponent of taking a more sustainable approach to architecture. Also a champion of adaptive reuse, she is adamant that designers must salvage what materials they can wherever they can.
In 2016, López took to the Design Indaba stage to share with the audience what she finds so inspiring about the possibilities afforded by architecture. Cognisant of the value of already existing structures in implementing truly sustainable forms of architecture, she talks about her unique process – one that involves sketching and rendering watercolours by hand – and how the practice of adaptive reuse can regenerate public spaces, giving them a new and more contemporary layer while maintaining their individual history.
THE CONSTRUCTION OF OUR HOME RENOVATION PROJECT IN LANDSMEER JUST STARTED.
VISIT TO ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE / ARPER / MOROSO
Together with four other Dutch architecture studios, we got invited to visit the Architecture Biennale in Venice as well as the Arper and Moroso furniture factories. The trip, made possible by Beltane, Burik&Burik and Desque, provided a wonderful peek into how beautiful designs become reality. Discussing own furniture designs with Patrizia Moroso and Giulio Ridolfo was definitely inspiring. Stay tuned for more updates on ongoing furniture design activities.
