La Rentrada

At this year's London Design Biennale, designer María Elena Pombo represented Venezuela with her project La Rentrada, presenting the concept of a new Venezuela with an avocado seed economy.

María Elena's project won the London Design Biennale 2021 Theme Medal, for the best interpretation of the theme of "Resonance."

At Canning House's recent event, Designing a better Latin America, we heard from María Elena and other Latin American designers and curators on their fascinating projects.
