HUSOS Arquitecturas

URBAN PLANNING & ARCHITECTURE: Projects Research Assistant

Husos is an architectural office that operates in the fields of architecture, urban planning and micro-landscaping, which are understood as practices of social transformation. Their work examines how these areas of action mediate the relationships that constitute everyday life: relationships to non-human nature, particularly between species, as well as those involving issues of gender and colonial dynamics, among others. These are unpacked through a continuous dialogue between research and design, theory and practice. Husos was founded by Diego Barajas (Bogotá) and Camilo García (Cali) in Madrid in 2003. Based in this city, it operates regularly between Spain and Colombia.It is currently formed by Almudena Tenorio, Camilo García, Diego Barajas and Sem Fernández. ____________________________________ The work of Husos is part of the permanent collections at the FRAC Centre in Orleans, France and the History Museum of Rotterdam, and it has received the Zumtobel Award for Sustainability and Humanity. Furthermore, it has been presented at the Venice Biennale, the Rotterdam Biennale, the Oslo Architecture Triennale, Matadero Madrid, the Tápies Foundation, Witte de With Museum in Holland, Ecovisionarios, and PhotoEspaña, among others. They are the authors of the book Urbanisms of remittances, (Re)productive houses in dispersion (Caniche Publishers, Madrid, 2017), which was awarded the Fundació Sabadell 2019 prize and is currently part of the permanent Art Collection of the Fundació Banc Sabadell in Barcelona.
