Santi Cirugeda

The atypical and utopian works of Santiago Cirugeda may be described as procedures for singling out empty areas in urban space and bestowing them with a purpose via improper use. An expert in guerrilla housing, Cirugeda stretches the limits of legality in order to find “illegal” loopholes and develop strategies for survival, changing architecture into social art, as well as an intervention into the collective imagination.
