“The temptation to design the world, to define the form and content of the territory as a whole is part of the imagination of humanity,” says Miquel Adrià, founder and director of Arquine. “Throughout history, there have been many who have projected possible, closed, complete worlds to build political, social or architectural utopias, which were irretrievably trapped in the limits of their times and, above all, of their places”.
These words are part of the editorial letter of Multiscala, the latest issue of Arquine magazine, whose pages review projects that take the world as a territory to be designed and built. Architectural works of national and public nature, reflections on the cities imagined by science fiction and initiatives such as the Shanghai Biennale are some of the guidelines that make up this issue.
This Thursday at 7:00 pm (CDT Time), this number will be presented for free through the platforms of the MEXTRÓPOLI City and Architecture Festival.
The event will be attended by the architect and writer Andrés Jaque, the researcher Daniel Daou and the architect Elena Tudela.
