Benenson Center

Pedro y Juana designed the seating elements originally for Hórama Rama, winner of MoMA PS1's Young Architects Program 2019. Art Omi: Architecture is exhibiting both the linear benches and cubic stools made of standard-milled lumber and painted with blue accents on the Freddie Terrace of the Benenson Center.

Pedro y Juana is a studio from Mexico City founded by Ana Paula Ruiz Galindo and Mecky Reuss that works on a variety of projects across creative professions. They explore the capacity of objects to change their environment through typological transgressions, the indiscriminate use of material, texture, color, placement or form. Their projects assemble new and unexpected relationships with those that encounter them. Some of them are: Sesiones Puerquito or Little Pig (2012-2014), cooking a suckling as a pretext for better conversation. Archivo Pavilion (2012), an intervention in the gardens of Archivo Diseño y Arquitectura DF/Mexico. Hellmut (2013) a Table turn Bench turn Table for Gallery 1 of Museo Jumex DF/Mexico. Casa Reyes (2011- 2012) an annex in an ex-colonial house in Merida/Yucatan. Pavilion of Hotel Palenque is not in Yucatán, a de-differentiated structure at the Hessel Museum of Art, NY (2014). With Love from The Tropics (2016-2017) a jungle for the MCA Chicago.
