Today we present a selection of creators from disciplines such as visual arts and architecture who work or have worked with their colleagues in the profession but, above all, in life.
Anne Lacaton and Jean-Philippe Vassal. This creative couple originally from France, Founder of Lacaton & Vassal, she is recognized for her many sustainable housing projects and for the Palais de Tokio or the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais Gallery, for contemporary art in Paris. This past year, the Pritzker prize 2021, architecture's highest honor was awarded to them. In their work they always prioritize the enrichment of human life, benefiting the individual and supporting the evolution of the city.
Christo and Jeanne-Claude. The projects of this duo, from Bulgaria and Morocco, respectively, stand out for their monumental character, although they have never resorted to traditional materials. Instead, they established a conception based on helping the public find a new way of relating to the environment, using fabric to wrap gigantic buildings, such as the Reichstag in Berlin, the Pont Neuf in Paris or the Surrounded Islands in Miami.
Denise Scott Brown and Robert Venturi. Against the shapes and philosophy of the house as a living machine, this couple of architects from Philadelphia proposed a new conception based on architecture as solutions to habitability problems, through which history could be reviewed, for which incorporated elements of different styles in a unique way. His works include Casa Vanna Venturi, Guild House or his numerous books.
