Selgascano was founded in 1998 by Madrid natives José Selgas and Lucía Cano. By borrowing technologies from fields that are rarely joined with architecture, their projects consider the entire construction process, from manufacture to installation, to extrapolate elements of beauty. In 2015, Selgascano became the first Spanish practice to design the Serpentine Pavilion in London. In 2013 they were awarded the Kunstpreis by the Akademie der Kunste in Berlin, and the Architects of the Year award by the German Design Council in Munich. Selgascano has exhibited their work at The Museum of Modern Art and the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
helloeverything is an international design studio founded in 2013 by Austin Smith, Julian Ocampo, and Sixto Cordero. Their work emerges from the opportunities of the standard to proliferate the spatial agency of people, objects, and relations which constitute contemporary life. Through design they expand and challenge the functions of the everyday, innovating through convention to achieve a non-standard operative praxis.
