Arquine celebrates 25 years of the annual MEXTRÓPOLI Pavilion with the aim of promoting challenges as part of architectural culture. Today, the contest invites you to design, build and activate a pavilion in the Historic Center of Mexico City within the framework of the MEXTRÓPOLI Architecture and City Festival; a pavilion that, temporarily inserted in the city, manages to generate, from its own discourse, an innovative and sustainable proposal; that allows the development of an open public program and that builds a place for interaction between architecture and citizenship.
Contestants must create a piece that meets the conditions specified in the rules of this contest in terms of time, costs and characteristics, considering the ability to provoke and attract the public, which will be a fundamental part of the evaluation of the proposal.
This Contest is open, anonymous and international in nature and is carried out in a single phase. It is governed by the provisions established in the administrative bases and technical bases.
Architects, designers, urban planners, sociologists, students and lovers of architecture, from all over the world, individually or as a team, can participate. The proposals must be unpublished and not have been presented or awarded in previous contests.
- Convene, with a universal character, to present ideas for the development and construction of a Pavilion, recyclable and reusable, without exception, complying with the requirements established in these bases.
- Turn the Pavilion into a reference space within the framework of the MEXTRÓPOLI Architecture and City Festival, which manages to provide the festival with a space for reflection and discussion around architecture and the city.
