Jarrett Ley, a dual degree student in the Architecture and Critical, Curatorial and Conceptual Practices programs, speaks with Colombian architect Camilo Restrepo Ochoa of AGENdA, on the occasion of his lecture at the school on February 5, 2018.
They discuss the nature of architecture in the tropics and its difference from Northern forms, seen in AGENdA’s projects exhibited at the Chicago Architecture Biennial and Mexico City gallery, LIGA 25.They also touch on Colombia’s perceptions of architecture and shifting client relations.
“European and Northern thought have been always about this black and white dichotomy. But the Tropic brings us a very different approach to things, which is that black and white happen at the same time. It’s a tense condition of here and now, before and after, past and present—everything happens at the same time.” —Camilo Restrepo Ochoa
