by Seth Biderman In this series, trace the evolution of lamesadevenn, an international collaborative of architects, product designers, and communication specialists who are redefining how and why we design. Journalist Seth Biderman and illustrator Nacho Durá chronicle their “living project,” the Rancho—a live/work space built to foster community and sustainability in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Part 5: Sourcing the Crowd Unlike most architectural projects, which focus on the relationship of a building to its surrounding landscape, lamesadevenn also focuses on the relationship of the building to the surrounding people. In other words, the building not only matches its landscape, but also embraces the values and beliefs of the people who live nearby. Think of it this way: it's like inviting your neighbors to give input on your kitchen remodel—a Pandora’s Box any sensible designer would keep firmly shut.
