MEXTRÓPOLI is the window that opens for four days every year to live the extraordinary city through architecture. It positions Mexico City as the most important and diverse scenario for thinking, creating, designing and enjoying the city by promoting creative, critical and participatory exercise through conferences, dialogues, workshops, routes, exhibitions, pavilions and activities.
MEXTRÓPOLI is the only forum in Latin America that gathers for four days more than 52,000 people who design the city—students, citizens, professionals, tourists, creative, public servants, artists, opinion leaders and experts—to generate knowledge, exchange and a develop a new vision of city through architecture.
Speakers at MEXTRÓPOLI 2017 include: Peter Zumthor, Francis Kéré, Reinier de Graaf, Joan Clos, Tatiana Bilbao, Junya Ishigami, Odile Decq, WOHA, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer, Marina Garcés, Giancarlo Mazzanti, Moshe Safdie, William Curtis, Camilo Restrepo, Solano Benítez and Gloria Cabral, Benjamín Romano, Eric Owen Moss, Didier Faustino, OB+RA and more.
Throughout the course of the festival, pavilions will be on display in Alameda Central, the main public space of Mexico City. The main pavilion is designed by Salottobuono in collaboration with Enrico Dusi. Guided walks will also be offered to the works of modern architects in Mexico City, such as Teodoro González de León, Mathias Goeritz and Mario Pani.
