Mexico City's Secretary of Public Works and Services announced a collaboration with some of the country's most distinguished architectural minds in a move to add on to the capital's educational and cultural infrastructure. The project centers on the planning and building of 25 new Points of Innovation, Freedom, Art, Education, and Knowledge (PILARES), an initiative implemented by Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum. The city has set the current project's budget at 264 million pesos, making it a phase of a much larger government expansion of the city's educational infrastructure that includes the implementation of 274 facilities in total. Of the 274 planned facilities, 165 are completed (32 new structures and 133 remodels), 56 are undergoing construction (50 new structures, 6 remodels), 41 are in the bidding process (35 new, 6 remodels), and 12 are under review by the Secretary of Education (11 new, 1 remodel). In total, the project is valued at 1.6 billion pesos.
