The MEXTRÓPOLI Architecture and City Festival extends its calendar of activities with a program that begins in April and ends in September. In times of crisis, it is necessary to reinvent itself so as not to stop offering the best activities that allow citizens to think about the present and the future of architecture and cities.

Like every year, MEXTRÓPOLI is an idea detonator that seeks to include voices that come from various disciplines and practices. Architects, urban planners, designers, but also writers, artists, and public officials are invited to a reflection that becomes much more necessary in current conditions. Cities are still inhabited and designed: the construction of culture through architecture cannot stop.
