The Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc) has announced the launch of SCI-Arc Mexico, to begin in mid-March 2016. Located in the Barragán Foundation in Mexico City, SCI-Arc Mexico will feature international studios, exhibitions, conferences and symposia, furthering SCI-Arc’s global presence by complementing SCI-Arc Shanghai as well as bolstering further development into South America and Europe.
“As part of the global outreach effort that SCI-Arc has embarked on, we are thrilled to have a home in such a dynamic city. The extent to which Latino culture influences SCI-Arc and the Los Angeles community at large, a presence in Mexico City is the natural next step,” said Director Hernan Diaz Alonso.
SCI-Arc Mexico will open with events in conjunction with Ibero-American University. Students from both schools will collaborate in a series of workshops culminating in reviews and panel discussions by Hernan Diaz Alonso and Thom Mayne.
The program will be co-ordinated by Francisco Pardo, founder of firm at103, and will include joint studios with Ibero-American University, and pop events including workshops, exhibitions and symposia.
