Living Things

The Mexican architect Tatiana Bilbao doesn’t have a signature building style that’s instantly recognizable. She’s not a top-down diva who designs grand sculptural statements by computer. Instead, Bilbao is singularly engaged with how the world is made and how people interact with her projects. Thriving on input, she prioritizes listening, documenting, and collaborating, a process that begins with her handmade, collaged drawings, which are, she says, “the first sentence in a conversation about architecture.” READ ON

Fresh Off the Boat

Isla del Rey, which translates to “the King’s Island,” is a four-hectare Mediterranean isle of crystal-clear waters, blue skies, and arid land. A 15-minute boat ride from the port of Mahón, on Spain’s Minorca, the island is home to the ruins of a sixth-century basilica as well as a former naval hospital, constructed by Minorca’s British occupiers in the early 18th century. Starting Monday, Isla del Rey will welcome Hauser & Wirth’s newest art gallery. READ ON
