by Seth Biderman In this series, trace the story of La Mesa de Venn, a green live/work space in Santa Fe, New Mexico, created for two community groups, La Mesita and La Resolana. Rather than simply becoming a building that addresses the structural needs of the groups, La Mesa de Venn seeks to embody their values of sustainability, experiential education, and community involvement. Part 1: How it all began. Forget the architectural academics bespeckled in thick-rimmed glasses, arguing over theoretical issues or self-serving competitions—this isn’t a standard story, and these aren’t the usual suspects. This is La Mesa de Venn, a socio-architecture collaborative, an international “archimunity” of innovators stepping outside of their professional fields to explore common interests. Simply put: they're redefining how and why we design.
