Gabriela Carrillo: Architecture 2014-2024 (TC Quadernos 164)

TC Quadernos, 2024


This issue of TC Cuadernos is dedicated to the prolific career of Mexican architect Gabriela Carrillo. Through a careful selection of projects developed between 2014 and 2024, the monograph offers a comprehensive analysis of her architectural practice, covering her diverse collaborations and working methods. Throughout her career, Gabriela Carrillo has demonstrated a constant quest to generate spatial experiences that are dignified and sensitive to “otherness,” and that respond to different users and contexts.  Her work explores dialogues with natural or built preexistences, material experimentation and climatic adaptation, new forms, programs, and spatial sensibilities that push the boundaries of architecture. The monograph analyzes in detail his career, from his partnership with Mauricio Rocha to the opening of his own studio and the founding of Colectivo C733. It includes houses, markets, cultural centers, ephemeral works, landscaping, and the recovery of historical buildings.

Each project is presented with images, plans, construction details, and drawings from the workbooks, offering an intimate look at his creative process.

With essays by Gonzalo Mendoza, Zaida Muxí, Loreta Castro, and Tania Candiani, this is an essential monograph that documents a decade of the practice and evolution of one of Mexico’s most important architects.
