006: Building a Modern Utopian Paradise in Mexico with Andrés Saavedra

In this episode, Yasmin speaks to Andrés Saavedra about the art of sustainable living and how stories can be told through the use of space. Born on farmland on the outskirts of Mexico City, Andrés grew up around his grandparents who had a deep relationship with the land around them. To describe himself, Andrés prefers the term ‘storyteller’, his medium of telling stories? Spaces. From homes, hotels, restaurants and even point breaks, he strives to build the perfect settings for great experiences to occur. This conversation was recorded on location at the coordinates of his current project, Musa, an untouched stretch of jungle meets coastline along the Pacific Ocean where he plans to build both a dream destination and live-able community powered by adventure, creativity, tradition and connection to the natural world.​
