  • Public-Library is a cross-disciplinary design studio in Los Angeles. They construct identities, concepts and experiences for brands through the practice of reduction using fundamental typographic theory and experimentation with space and form.

    Ramón Coronado and Marshall Rake met as design students at Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After studying, working, and exhibiting independently for many years—both stateside and internationally—their design philosophy and approach brought them back together as Public-Library in 2011.

Architect Tatiana Bilbao is the 2016-2017 Donghia Designer-In-Residence

Bilbao to Lead Master Class At Otis College and Present Public Lecture at MOCA

Architect Tatiana Bilbao, the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors program's 2016-2017 Donghia Designer-In-Residence, will direct a one-week master class at the college between March 16 and 22, and present a public lecture at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles (MOCA) on March 15, 2017.

Shortlisted for The Architectural Review’s 2016 Woman Architect of the Year, Tatiana Bilbao’s work is multicultural and multidisciplinary, as her studio seeks to regenerate and humanize spaces in reaction to global capitalism, opening up niches for cultural and economic development. A Mexico City native, she founded Tatiana Bilbao Estudio in 2004 with ongoing projects in China, Europe, and Mexico.

“We are thrilled to be able to host the ninth annual Donghia Designer-in-Residency through the continuing, generous support of the Angelo Donghia Foundation,” says Linda Pollari, Chair of the Architecture/Landscape/Interiors program. “The Donghia Master Class, in particular, is a very special intense and immersive experience in which students are directed and inspired by the Donghia Designer to produce unique projects in only five days.”

Bilbao is the recipient of the Kunstpries Berlin in 2012, the Global Award for Sustainable Architecture Prize in 2014 and named as Emerging Voice by the Architecture League of NY in 2009. Her work can be seen in the collections of the Centre d’Art George Pompidou, the Carnegie Museum of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago. Her work has been published in A+U, Domus, and The New York Times among others.

Previous designers in the residency include Eva Maddox, Eva Maddox Branded Environments, Chicago; David J. Lewis and Marc Tsurumaki, LTL, New York; Nader Tehrani, NADAA, Boston and New York with Sharon Johnston, JohnstonMarkLee, Los Angeles; Xavier Vendrell, Xavier Vendrell Studio, Chicago and Barcelona; Shashi Can, Shashi Caan Collective, New York and London; Joep van Lieshout, Atelier Van Lieshout, Rotterdam; Studio mk27, São Paulo, represented by founder Marcio Kogan and Mariana Sima; and Bernard Khoury, Bernard Khoury / DW5, Beirut.

The Donghia Designer-in-Residency is made possible through a generous grant from the Angelo Donghia Foundation, which provides support for the advancement of education in the field of interior design. Since 2008, the residency has invited a distinguished designer to lead a one-week master class for a group of Architecture/Landscape/Interiors juniors and seniors and present a public lecture to the Los Angeles community.
