Arquine International Competition No.18 - Mextropoli 2016 Pavilion
Архитектурный конкурс журнала Arquine проходит с 1998 года. Ежегодно в нем принимают участие более 400 архитекторов и студентов со всего мира. На этот раз участникам предлагается спроектировать выставочный павильон для фестиваля Mextropoli 2016, который впоследствии станет передвижным. Победитель, чей проект будет реализован, получит возможность присутствовать на фестивале в Мехико в марте будущего года.
Arquine’s International Architecture Competition has been organized since 1998 and it seeks to explore issues of importance and relevance to society, encourage the opening of spaces for dialogue as well as promoting the architect’s engagement in matters determined by a projective response in which national and international participation are promoted. This competition has established itself as one of the most relevant in the field of architecture: in each edition, more than 400 candidates from 20 countries have been registered.
After 17 years, Arquine’s International Architecture Competition still remains a platform that was created to satisfy the need of promoting the “culture of competition”. With the coming of age, Arquine transforms the spirit of this call in order to redirect it to a buildable and recyclable project; an architectural event in itself, this edition of the contest aims to build a pavilion, which can generate its own discourse as well as an innovative and sustainable proposal that not only provides an open public program but also an space for the interaction between architecture and citizenship. The MEXTROPOLI Pavilion will become a public space where discussions about fundamental issues for the city will be made.
Contestants must design a structure that accomplishes the requirements set by the rules of the competition in terms, costs and characteristics. The MEXTROPOLI Pavilion will become a traveling device that each year will be the benchmark of the Architecture and City Festival in turn.
