AA Mexico City Visiting School

Courtesy of AA

Taking place June 26 – July 5, the AA Mexico City Visiting School will engage with the most crucial and imposing challenges that City faces and the ways in which architecture and urbanism can shape the metropolis at different scales. In this sense the international program sees the city as a laboratory where the virtual and experimental tradition of the Architectural Association finds a fertile and concrete ground for the application of its methodology in . With the theme of “Manufactured Landscapes/Manufactured Urbanities”, the program explores the metropolitan condition understood as a manufactured process by and for human beings.
