A public space is one where people engage in group or individual activities, recreational, cultural, playing, publicity, or simple transit. Anyone has the right to inhabit the space, regardless of their personal, social, or economic condition.


The debates around public space in Mexico have become a central theme in our current society. Social, economical, political and cultural agendas are all closely related. Additionally, the current state of our public spaces is a clear indicator of inequality and the lack of opportunities in certain demographics.

Beijing in Asia and Mexico City in America are both metropolises with a sense of history, modernity and eternal charm.


But, do we really know the city that we live in? We have invited guests from Beijing and Mexico City to share architectural and humanistic perspectives from macro and micro scales to help us understand the character and mood of these two megacities.

herramientas más allá del diseño

La producción de buen diseño inicia desde la academia, y Ciudad de México cuenta con múltiples instituciones de primer nivel que fomentan el desarrollo crítico desde las primera etapas de formación de sus estudiantes. 


En éstas instituciones no sólo se imparte conocimiento, sino que son el campo para la experimentación, la investigación y la innovación en materia de diseño. Involucran además en su práctica temas de importancia actual como sustentabilidad, responsabilidad social, diseño participativo, innovación en materiales y métodos de producción, entre otros.

Éste eje temático muestra las aportaciones que las universidades y academias llevan a cabo junto con sus alumnos en la búsqueda por estrategias y alternativas que vayan más allá de los cánones convencionales.
