Meet two of the keynote speakers
Tatiana Bilbao formed her own practice in 2004 in Mexico City. She recently lead and designed the master plan for Ruta del Peregrino, a 117-kilometre pilgrimage route, along which various structures have been strategically placed to engage around two million people traversing the route annually.
The project is a collaboration between artists and architects such as Ai Wei Wei, Elemental and Dellekamp Arquitectos. Bilbao was named in Architectural Record’s Design Vanguard in 2007 and her work has been published in A+U, Domus, and The New York Times, among others.
This dynamic woman studied architecture and urbanism at the Universidad Iberoamericana Ciudad de México, and co-founded MXDF Urban Research Centre with Derek Dellekamp, Arturo Ortiz, and Michel Rojkind.
