Hotel Condessa, Mexico City SOURCE JSa

This week we talk with Javier Sánchez, developer, architect and founder of JSa architectural firm, with offices in Mexico City and in Peru. We interrogate the state of contemporary practice in Mexico, the role of Modernism, and the power of transformation in architecture. We discuss with Javier family legacy, time, and innovation as the son and grandson of architects and forging his own path in the design world. And we examine the role of personal change and the role of running in rethinking architectural practice.

DEAR LISTENERS: You might notice some distortion in the second half of the interview. We had some interference on the recording but it improves.
