Ernesto Oroza is the first guest of the Almanach residencies. He is a Cuban artist, designer and researcher, who is particularly interested in architectures of necessity, technological disobedience, and other topics that link design and society in times of economic and political crisis. He produces and distributes speculative models and research through various publishing methods, exhibitions, collaborative practices, documentaries, and unorthodox forays into architecture, interior design, and object design. In Cognac,  he will be working on the resource hubs represented by Emmaüs and recycling centers.
