An international jury composed by Ambra Medda (Co-founder, Design Miami/Basel; founder, A.M.O.), Catalina Corcuera (Director, Casa Estudio Luis Barragán), Joseph Grima (Editor in chief, Domus), Miquel Adrià (Founder and editor, Arquine), Paola Antonelli (Curator, MoMA, NY), and Yvés Behar (Founder, fuseproject) will review all entries.
The winning proposal will receive a monetary incentive of 5,000 USD, and will be published in Domus, Domus México, and Domusweb.it.
Located immediately beside the iconic Casa Estudio Luis Barragán, Archivo forms part of a new cultural circuit that is rooted in local history. Taking into consideration the historical qualities of the site and context, the Archivo Pavilion must be able to host two specific audiences: the design and local community. Upon committing to build and install the winning proposal, Archivo Diseño y Arquitectura seeks to establish a dialogue between the design community and the visitors to neighboring institutions such as LABOR Galería de Arte Contemporáneo and Casa Estudio Luis Barragán.
The Archivo Pavilion initiative is a direct response to the lack of public community spaces in the neighborhood. The project's main goal is to counteract this condition through an open temporary structure and its architectural and design program.
