International Designer Talk: Tatiana Bilbao

Mexican born Tatiana Bilbao is one of the most important architects working today. An advocate for architectural design that stimulates social change, Bilbao has brought a unique perspective to the history of the architectural profession and its future by creating work that is intellectually rigorous and visually dynamic.

Establishing her Mexico City-based practice Tatiana Bilbao Estudio in 2004, she is the first designer to be celebrated as part of the MECCA x NGV Women in Design Commission series. Coinciding with the world premiere of her large-scale installation for NGV, La ropa sucia se lava en casa (Dirty clothes are washed at home), bringing together architectural elements, up-cycled textiles and wall drawings, Bilbao joins us live at NGV where she shares the topics and ideas driving her architectural projects, followed by a Q&A with Gemma Savio, Curator of Contemporary Design and Architecture, NGV.
