Forms of Living


Forms of Living was founded in 2019 by Elena Palacios Carral and Lola Lozano Lara.

Their practice explores the relationship between life and form as expressed in architecture, the city and the landscape. Their work is materialised through architectural designs, buildings, exhibitions, drawings, research projects, writing, and teaching.

Lola and Elena co-lead a design studio at the University of Cambridge alongside Sam Nelson (Type), where they are developing a study on New Towns in the UK. They teach at Central Saint Martins alongside Sabrina Puddu (Territories of Incarceration) and run an Architecture Dissertation module in the Architecture and History department at the University of Greenwich, where they are expanding their study on what they call the Studioification of the Home.

In the past, they contributed to the History and Theory course at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and the Architectural Association in London (AA) and have taught design in the MArchD course at Oxford Brookes University, Kingston University, Westminster University (MAIA) and the University of Hertfordshire.

They are doctoral candidates at the Architectural Association in London.
