COHSTRA featured in the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021
Profs. Gabriela Rendon and Miguel Robles-Durán, and their cooperative Cohabitation Strategies (COHSTRA), have been featured in the Venice Architecture Biennale 2021.
From the exhibition catalog:
The constant exploitation of urban communities and the planet enables the current state of urbanization. It is capitalism’s tendency to pursue what Marx called “the enforced destruction of a mass of productive forces” via the contemporary processes of urbanization and its devastating consequences to communities, cultures, and the environment. Yet there are forces that contrast this tendency and are building daily an alternative that has an impact at a local scale. How To Begin Again is a four-step initiation to a new awareness of the possibilities of building environmentally and socially just cities.
