ByDesign 2020 – Livingston: The Man and the Method (Método Livingston)
$13 General Admission
Vines grow in through the windows of Argentinian architect Rodolfo Livingston’s Buenos Aires home, but he doesn’t mind. According to him, “the spiders are welcome in.” The charming designer, still practicing into his late 80’s, has spent his career connecting with the people who will experience his creation. His is an exploration of the human interaction with architecture. In Método Livingston, he walks us through his house, his connection to Fidel Castro, and his hopes for his young son – all within the context of architecture as a tool for change.
