After years of practice with local communities, use of natural and local materials and ancestral techniques of the territory where her work is inserted, Cazú Zegers has developed a work methodology that leads her to become an expert in the practices of Ethnoarchitecture and Ethnoengineering, leading projects with world organizations. Both disciplines value indigenous traditional knowledge as a source of inspiration for the realization of constructive and sustainable design practices with their natural and cultural environment. They include a participatory methodology to address infrastructure projects and their implementation processes to the cultural particularities of indigenous peoples. The Cazú Zegers Studio is today one of the few in Latin America specialized in this area, generating various projects in relation to the Native Peoples of the region.
Projects such as: Ruka Contemporánea (2014), Ruta Pehuenche (2015), Maternal Houses (2020), Ethno-tourism Ruta del Condor (2020), Regulatory research on ethnoengineering in infrastructure projects (2021), among others.
