Introduction / Amale Andraos -- Photographs by Alejandro Cartagena, Livia Corona Benjamin, and Jorge Taboada -- A house is not just a house / Tatiana Bilbao -- From the right to housing to the right to credit : the drama of ownership in Mexico / Ivonne Santoyo-Orozco -- Unknowable terrains / Gabriela Etchegaray -- Afterword / Hilary Sample.
A House Is Not Just a House argues precisely that. The book traces Tatiana Bilbao's diverse work on housing ranging from large-scale social projects to single-family luxury homes. These projects offer a way of thinking about the limits of housing: where it begins and where it ends. Regardless of type, her work advances an argument on housing that is simultaneously expansive and minimal, inseparable from the broader environment outside of it and predicated on the fundamental requirements of living. Working within the turbulent history of social housing in Mexico, Bilbao argues for participating even when circumstances are less than ideal-and from this participation she is able to propose specific strategies learned in Mexico for producing housing elsewhere. A House Is Not Just a House includes a recent lecture by Bilbao at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, as well as reflections from fellow practitioners and scholars, including Amale Andraos, Gabriela Etchegaray, Hilary Sample, and Ivonne Santoyo-Orozco.
