Al Borde: Less Is All

In stock (1000 items available)
“Less Is All” is the motto of Ecuadorian architecture firm Al Borde, founded in 2007 by Pascual Gangotena, David Barragán, Marialuisa Borja and Estevan Benavides. The materials they use – such as tire rubber and recycled glass – and the projects they adopt reflect the state of a globalised Ecuador.For example, for their House of the Flying Beds Al Borde refurbished an 18th-century family house by restoring the rammed earth walls, installing tire rubber and recycled glass on the roof and suspending beds above the open-plan, ground-floor living area with eucalyptus trusses, thus maintaining the form of the house but turning the interior into something indubitably modern.
