    Architecture treasure map

    Alec Perkins Sep 11 '13 0

    After one of Archinect's senior editors kindly put my "one day tour of mexico city architecture" into a map form, it dawned on me that maybe I should make a map of all of the interesting contemporary and modern architecture I've seen here in Mexico City. Mapmaker, mapmaker, make me a map....

    I've organized the map into three layers-

    • contemporary architecture from the last ten years
    • classic modernism which catches everything from early Juan O'Gorman in the 1940s to Legorreta at the beginning of the 1970s
    • places I like to eat, because Mexican food.

    Apart from Barragan, I have not included any residential architecture since houses here are typically behind high walls topped with electrified razor wire. I have also included the nearby cities of Puebla and Cuernavaca because you can easily reach both of the cities via busses from Mexico City which leave every 15 minutes and take 1-2 hours to travel.

    There is a bit of irony that I'm not including of Tatiana Bilbao's work here, considering that I'm an intern for this office, but the fact is that most of the office's work is in other places like San Luis Potosì, Cuilican, and Berlin.

    Here is the link to the map

    Happy travels!
