In complex times, we ask ourselves what to do in the public space for the MEXTRÓPOLI 2021 pavilion. Not a pavilion. Occupy the space with activations, complement it with prostheses or installations, transform it with an application or with device (s), imagine prototype (s) to rethink the spaces in which, keeping distance, we will find ourselves.
In this edition of the contest, you are not looking for a pavilion. For the edition of the MEXTRÓPOLI 2021 Architecture and City festival, we invite you to speculate on new ways of using public space. We know that the pandemic has changed and will continue to change ways of life, but how will it change?
This call aims to rethink the use and occupation of the urban environment, to propose the spaces in which we can meet again and celebrate the city. Put aside the design of a limited, delimited, perhaps closed or roofed space to think about activations, prosthetics, artifacts, perhaps an application on your smartphone, or an ephemeral installation.
The objective is to summon with a universal character, to present ideas for the use and temporary and collective occupation of public space.
The Arquine Competition No.23 is called by Arquine, who will have the responsibility of organizing the technical-administrative information before and after the development of the contest, knowing the queries made by the participants and giving the corresponding answers, according to the provisions of these bases, write the minutes of the plenary meeting of the Jury and the award minutes, as well as all the actions for the proper development of this contest.
