The capital lends itself as a laboratory in which urban conditions strongly influence work patterns and shape the architectural avant-garde. With more than 18 million inhabitants, and with 80% of its area built without  any professional intervention of architects or urban planners, Mexico City presents interesting conditions for those in search of a magic potion to unlock creativity. The synergy between the great architects of Mexico City today such as: Higuera + Sanchez, LAR/Fernando Romero, Michel Rojkind (Rojkind Arquitectos), TEN Arquitectos/Enrique Norten, amongst others, is presented here with renowned and unknown projects from the domestic scale to the mega metropolitan scale of Mexico City.

Motion 1: Casa Taanah Sak (Residence)

This is a paradigm of the loft concept (designed by BH / Gerardo Broissin y Jorge Hernàndez de la Garza, PAICSA / Armando Aiza, Javier Montero). To reflect the purity of the concept, the materials from its structure, concrete walls and steel elements, are completely exposed. In the upper floor, two rectangular masses with different heights provide the needed spaces to the private program, guiding the public spaces towards the terrace.
