Born and raised in Rosario, Argentina, Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich are both renowned architects and distinguished educators. Together, they lead Los Angeles-based and award-winning architectural practice P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, which they founded in 2002 as a speculative platform to explore an increasingly global design culture. Their work reveals a rigorous and progressive approach to projects and buildings across materials, scales, agendas and geographies, insisting on the cultural and social relevance of architectural form, contemporary aesthetics and emerging technologies. Their books include PATTERNS: Embedded, the studio first monograph published in 2010 by Shanghai based ACDCU and Mute Icons & Other Dichotomies of the Real in Architecture recently released by ACTAR Press. Marcelo Spina is a Design Faculty at SCI-Arc and Georgina Huljich is an Associate Professor at UCLA AUD.
P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S is a leading architectural practice led by partners Marcelo Spina and Georgina Huljich. The studio brings a critical and progressive approach to projects across scales, programs, and geographies, insisting on the cultural and social relevance of architectural form, contemporary aesthetics, and emerging technologies. Based in Los Angeles, the forward-looking studio takes advantage of the city’s decidedly global stance and idiosyncratic identity to create engaging and speculative architectural projects that become civic and cultural landmarks within the public realm.
P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S gained international recognition as one of the most intriguing and broadminded firms in contemporary architecture with work exhibited worldwide, most notably at the Venice Biennale in Italy, The Chicago Biennial, The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, The Art Institute of Chicago, The San Francisco MOMA, The MAK Museum in Vienna, and The FRAC in Orleans, where it is also part of their permanent collections.
P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S work has been published extensively and has been the subject of numerous essays, books, magazines, newspapers, and catalogues.
P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S is a registered Women Owned Business, Minority Owned Business and Small Business Enterprise.
Introduced and moderated by Stephen Phillips, FAIA, PhD, Principal of Stephen Phillips Architects (SPARCHS) and professor, director, Cal Poly LA Metro Program in Architecture and Urban Design (California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo).
