They believe that this can be summed up in the architectural rehearsal, which is the way that modern architecture should be understood. The architectural rehearsal is a vehicle for approaching themselves; the more they rehearse, the more they understand themselves. Furthermore, for architecture to be capable of conveying an idea or intention, it has to speak of the individual, or the sum of individuals, and the way they relate to their environment, on both a sensorial and emotional level.
Pablo Pérez Palacios (Mexico City, 1980) studied in Florence, Italy before he started a bachelor’s degree in Architecture in Mexico City’s Universidad Iberoamericana and Barcelona’s Universidad Politécnica de Cataluña (2000-2005). He pursued a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design at Columbia University in New York City. Subsequently, he established DCPP Architects (2007-2017) with Alfonso de la Concha.
In 2018, he started PPAA Pérez Palacios Arquitectos Asociados, an architecture studio located in Mexico City that defines itself as an independent professional practice concentrated on architecture, art, urban, and interior design. PPAA seeks an architecture of ideas over forms.
