About the Architects

Pita & Bloom
Pita & Bloom is an architectural research and design collaborative based in Los Angeles. Started in 2010 by Florencia Pita and Jackilin Hah Bloom to test ideas on their shared notions of color, form, and material applications, Pita & Bloom aims to represent attitudes of contemporary culture while addressing each project’s specific challenges. Their projects to date include speculative cultural buildings, indoor and outdoor environments, social housing in Mexico, as well as objects to be viewed or used. In 2014, Pita & Bloom were called “two female visionaries” in Architecture Magazine’s Next Progressives, and they were selected as one of five finalists of the MoMA PS1 YAP competition. Recently they were selected as one of twelve teams to represent the U.S. Pavilion’s exhibit, The Architectural Imagination, at the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.
