Santiago Cirugeda’s architectural studio, Recetas Urbanas, pursues the development of subversive projects in different areas of the urban reality, empowering citizens to act in their own locality by showing how to subvert laws, regulations, and conventions. His antidotes to capitalist and commodified space are available for anyone to replicate, from the occupation of public spaces with containers to the construction of prosthetics for facades, backyards, roofs and empty lots. All of these achieved through a negotiation process between the legality and illegality, as a reminder of the enormous control we are subjected to.
