VERTEBRAL is an architecture and landscaping studio founded in Mexico City by Elias Kalach and Teddy Nanes in 2016.
The approach to projects always follows the same logic, despite being in different social, political and geographical contexts. The studio is not governed by an aesthetic ideal or by a geometric predisposition, but by a search that arises from the exercise of observation, in order to approach the understanding of a site and a series of circumstances that give input and guidelines to architecture. . Vertebral understands architecture as the act of intervening in a site to create space through walls and slabs, but also through bushes, herbs and trees.
Vertebral uses primary materials in its architecture. Concrete, steel, stone and wood are the resources that with a wide range of geometries build the imaginary of the team, its models and its buildings.
