Recetas Urbanas

Informationen zum Künstler

Recetas Urbanas, a Spanish collective of artists / activists / architects. Santiago Cirugeda is the best known member. Together, in their social architecture, they reinvent anonymous urban spaces into community-based places. Centralized in their approach is ‘green’ and its effects on city life, made visible in the structures they create. With a certain simplicity in the design, trying to grasp back to recycled materials, participation is made accessible and attractive to all. Besides commissioned/ authorized works, Recetas Urbanas plays the role of activist with unauthorized city interventions in order to research (local) rules & laws. The aim is to find gaps in legislation on the use of public space.
