Casa MarbelParticipatory processes in housing production hold fundamental importance. The amalgamation of local knowledge among residents and the interdisciplinary collaboration of technical teams enables the proposed solutions to engage in respectful dialogue with the environment, aligning with climatic conditions and available resources. Nevertheless, what carries even greater significance is that these processes empower residents to become protagonists, establishing communication channels that ensure the appropriateness and adaptability of design and construction methods by communities. The family of Marbel Torres Montiel, residing in the community of Ocuilán de Arteaga, State of Mexico, was one of those affected by the loss of their dwelling due to the earthquake on September 19, 2017. Through collaboration and coordination with the PienZa Sostenible Foundation, Marbel, and her family obtained financial support from private initiatives to undertake the reconstruction of their heritage. Within the framework of the "Reconstruir MX" program, the team from Tatiana Bilbao Estudio collaborated with Marbel's family, immersing themselves in their history and dynamics. This enabled the conception of an architectural design collectively, determining the distribution of living volumes and their uses, as well as outdoor spaces. The primary objective was for this design to coherently adapt to their immediate context, encompassing both construction-related aspects as well as recreational and work-related facets.Casa Pedro y PazIn the year 2017, a magnitude 7.1 earthquake struck the center of Mexico, leaving a significant number of families homeless, including Pedro and Paz. Within the framework of the "Reconstruir MX" program, they embarked on the planning of their new dwelling with the support of architects from Tatiana Bilbao Estudio, the Universidad Iberoamericana, and the Fundación Comunitaria Malinalco. In response to this event, the National Fund for Natural Disasters (FONDEN) allocated a symbolic amount to the affected families for the reconstruction of their heritage. Within economic constraints, Pedro and Paz's family chose to undertake the construction themselves, encompassing everything from foundations to the installation of roofs and windows. Self-construction is a common practice in Mexico due to the lack of resources to hire professional services in this field. In this context, the team of architects played an advisory role in terms of design, construction, and material selection, aiming to enhance lighting, ventilation, and temperature within private spaces. Nevertheless, the final decisions rested with the family, who would be the occupants of the residence.
