MEXTRÓPOLI 2019./ Where the city ends
March 9 @ 10:00 am - May 12 @ 9:00 pm |
From 9 to 12 March, MEXTRÓPOLI Festival of Architecture and City celebrates its sixth edition.
MEXTRÓPOLI is a ludic and reflective event that puts the voices of architects, town planners and authorities at the public's reach to generate knowledge about the city we inhabit. The occupation of public space with pavilions, the dialogue tables that involve the most prominent actors in issues such as urbanism and public policy, as well as a strong selection of speakers draw up a program that seeks to include citizens in all their meanings: Students, activists, urban planners and architects are welcome to experience the extraordinary city.
Among the guests that will accompany us, there are names like the Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, Pritzker Prize 2016; the Mexican chronicler Juan Villoro; the designer Carla Fernández; the Barcelona architect Benedetta Tagliabue; former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; the French architect Dominique Perrault, among others. In addition to the conferences, MEXTRÓPOLI will also inaugurate seven architecture exhibitions in different venues in Mexico City, as well as routes, workshops, dialogue tables, film screenings and other activities in public space. More than 100 activities, with an audience of 88 thousand people that include students, professionals and the general public, MEXTRÓPOLI is once again positioned as the best event to think about the directions of the city.
From 9 to 12 March the extraordinary city lives
