September 14 to 19, 2024

Mexico City


An exercise about motives and motivations. For a few days, discussions will generate intentions, leading to fictional devices to be built and installed somewhere in the city. Such objects will carry the weight of their authors and their preoccupations, causing confrontations with the reality of daily life. Architecture can be many things; we can only hope whatever one produces might be seen as architecture.
