Arquine is happy to announce the competition to design and build a temporary pavilion for MEXTRÓPOLI 2018, the International Festival of Architecture and the City. The pavilion should demonstrate a sustainable approach, contemplate an open public program, and create a place for interaction between architecture and citizenship. The MEXTRÓPOLI 2018 Pavilion will become an active public space for programs and reflections on key urban issues. The pavilion should: have a social vocation, be recyclable and reusable, be a recreational device, and carry both information and knowledge to different spaces as demanded by the city.

Participants are called upon to design a structure that complies with the requirements that specify the rules of this competition in terms of time, cost, and characteristics. The proposal should include a thematic approach and consider how discussions within the structure will be carried out. The MEXTRÓPOLI 2018 Pavilion will become a device that can be used to generate ideas revolving around the development of architecture and the city, which in turn will be used as a benchmark for following editions of the festival.
