In uncertain times, we ask ourselves what to do in the public space during MEXTRÓPOLI 2021. For the past five years, the Arquine Competition has called for the design and construction of a pavilion that, temporarily inserted in the city, would allow the interaction between architecture and the citizenship. We know that the pandemic has changed and will continue to change how we live, but to what extent? After twenty-two years summoning specific ideas and proposals, Arquine (Mexico City) invites you to speculate on new ways of using the public space, focused on the design of a meeting point where proximity and encounter are the mail characteristics.
