Founders & Directors



 Space Popular is directed by founders Lara Lesmes and Fredrik Hellberg, who are both graduates from the Architectural Association in London. The practice, founded in Bangkok in 2013 and based in London since 2016 creates spaces, objects and events in both physical and virtual space concentrating on how the two will be fused in the future. 

The studio has completed buildings, exhibitions, public artworks, furniture collections and interiors across Asia and Europe as well as virtual architecture across the immersive internet. Clients, collaborators and commissioners include national institutions such as - The Swedish Centre for Architecture and Design or ArkDes - Stockholm, Royal Institute of British Architects - London, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art - Seoul, independent galleries such as MAGAZIN - Vienna and Sto Werkstatt - London. 

Lesmes and Hellberg both have extensive teaching experience at universities in Asia and Europe after running design studios for nine years at INDA, Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok and at the Architectural Association in London and lecturing and teaching workshops across the world. They are currently running a MArch design and research unit at the Architectural Association creating visions for civic virtual architecture.
