About Recetas Urbanas
Santiago Cirugeda is the founder and principal of Recetas Urbanas (Urban Recipes), a design & advocacy collective of architects, lawyers and social workers based in Seville, Spain.
Recetas Urbanas was founded in 2004 to promote the well-being of city residents against a bureaucratic framework that favored investment and development over community life. The group’s activities include building cheap ‘condos’ on rooftops, attaching micro-apartments to scaffolding or placing them on stilts in alleyways, and disassembling buildings slated for demolition and reassembling them into arts centers.
Recetas Urbanas is a Curry Stone Foundation Social Design Circle Honoree. Read more about it here.
