Houston, TX, United States of America
HOME-OFFICE is an American architecture collaborative founded by Brittany Utting and Daniel Jacobs in 2017. HOME-OFFICE uses architecture and image production to examine contemporary conditions and economies of labor, leisure, and production. HOME-OFFICE advocates for a drastic re-imagining of architectural work, seeking to define new subjectivities and collectivities through tone, temperament, and ethos.

INSTANT-NATURE is a deployable garden pavilion for Mexico City.

Type of project
  • Site-specific cases

INSTANT-NATURE, in the Plaza de la Solidaridad in Mexico City, is a deployable environment designed for the 2020 Festival of Architecture and City. Operating as an artificial ecology, the pavilion is a public gathering space dedicated to the relationship between architecture and the environment. The project’s inventory of notated furniture produces an overlay of information and living material, creating a garden of mobile greenhouses that can be deployed throughout the city. On site, the pavilion’s light steel frame structure sits within a garden of imported plants, each labeled with a point of origin and import-export histories. The displays detail the transnational origins of these living commodities, making visible the geopolitical lineages of each specimen and countering traditional narratives of nature as a fixed and ideal. The project creates an instant garden for the city, outlining the systems of production and distribution that shape our everyday ecological imaginaries.
