Forms of Living


Forms of Living is an architectural practice that explores the relationship between life and form in cities and landscapes. Their research focuses on the distribution of affective and reproductive work, and how architecture is instrumentalised in the organisation, management, distribution, and marginalisation of spaces dedicated to social reproduction. Their work includes drawings, buildings, teaching, exhibitions and writing.

Forms of Living was founded in 2019 by Lola Lozano Lara and Elena Palacios Carral. They currently teach design studios at the University of Cambridge, the Architectural Association, and Leeds Beckett University. In the past, they have contributed to architecture courses at Central Saint Martins, the Royal College of Art, University of Greenwich, Kingston University, Oxford Brookes University, Westminster University, and the University of Hertfordshire.
