The Architectural League’s annual Emerging Voices program spotlights North American architects, landscape architects, and urban designers who have significant bodies of realized work and the potential to influence their field. Join us for lectures by two 2020 Emerging Voices.
Established in Mexico City in 2016, Escobedo Soliz was founded by former National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) classmates Lazbent Pavel Escobedo Amaral and Andrés Soliz Paz. According to the partners, their practice “is based on a continuous exploration of materials, structures and construction systems to find particular solutions for each situation.” With built projects ranging from ephemeral art installations to rural public schools, Escobedo Soliz aims to do more with less in order to create a contextual yet sensorial architecture.
Founded in 2004 by Brandon Dake and Andrew Wells, Dake Wells Architecture is based in Springfield and Kansas City, Missouri. The firm is rooted in the context of the Midwest and presents creative, economic solutions for projects that range from schools to community centers to university buildings. Their firm philosophy states: “With a focus on craft, detail, materiality, spatial richness and site connection, we endeavor to bring a measure of unexpected joy into everyday life.”
Emerging Voices 2020 lectures are free for Architectural League members, $10 for non-members.
