FEBRUARY 25th-27th 2022

Since the beginning of Urvanity in 2017, Mahou has been part of our project and is doing so again in this sixth edition. This year we will continue to work together to develop cultural and artistic activations, as part of our quest to reconnect people with art and their environment.

This year, we will once again intervene in the Espacio Mahou, which will host our UVNT Mahou Talks, this time with the architects of PAREID.

Everywhere and Nowhere

Everything is connected. Pipes, tubes, wires and cables transfer physical and digital matter through vast infrastructural networks. These elements span cities, landscapes, continents and are often out in the open but when followed lead to no beginning or end, abruptly vanishing behind walls, into the ground or connecting to circuits and subsumed into a large whole.  They have the characteristic of being ubiquitous while disappearing in plain view; they are everywhere and nowhere. The language of excess, fluidity, connectivity and transmission, are rendered in the space through the use of three materials: tubes, lights, metal. Lining the walls, ceiling and parts of the floor, visitors are immersed by the machine-like organs and red glow; all of which are familiar and at the same time alien.



Deborah Lopez and Hadin Charbel are architects and founders of Pareid, an interdisciplinary design and research studio currently based in London. Their work takes approaches from diverse fields and contexts, addressing issues related to climate, ecology, human perception, machine sentience, and its ability to alter current modes of existence through imminent fictions. 

Both are lecturers at the Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL on the B-Pro programme, where they lead a research group, entitled 'Monumental Wastelands'.

Awarded with the Monbukagakusho (MEXT) scholarship from 2014-2018, they received their Master of Engineering in the Field of Architecture from the University of Tokyo (T-ADS). 

Their research has been featured and presented at conferences in the United States and Europe, including ACADIA Post-human Frontiers, Technarte Art+Technology Conference, COCA First International Conference in Architectural Communication, and at ACADIA Disciplines & Disruption (MIT, Cambridge, 2017).

They have been awarded with the COAM Emerging 2020 prize and Arquia Innova awards by the Arquia Foundation in 2020.
