Please join the Harvard Graduate School of Design for an open house lecture, "Split Subject," with Frida Escobedo.
Frida Escobedo is principal and founder of an architecture and design studio based in Mexico City. The projects produced at the studio operate within a theoretical framework that addresses time not as a historical calibration, but rather a social operation. This expanded temporal reading stems directly from Henri Bergson’s notion of ‘social time,’ and is articulated in conceptual works such as the El Eco Pavilion (2010), Split Subject (2013) and Civic Stage (2013). By these measures of practice and thought, social time unfolds across multiple subjects at multiple speeds and modes of duration.
