The lecture will be the first presentation ever of Pedro&Juana in New York with a comprehensive introduction of their most recent work, that will dive into their process of thinking through design. Assemblies of different objects at all scales from pigs through pots to buildings tell the story of relationships between all the actors that interact with each other.
