MAS Context editor in chief Iker Gil will participate in Mextropoli, the First International Festival on Architecture and the City. The Festival, organized by Arquine and directed by Andrea Griborio, takes place in Mexico City between March 22 and March 26, 2014.
Iker will be part of a panel discussion called “Habla ciudad: la crítica” that will include Ethel Baraona Pohl from Barcelona (MAS Context contributor and part of the board of advisors), Andrés Jaque from Madrid and Mimi Zeiger from Los Angeles (also a contributor of MAS Context). It will be a really interesting conversation given the work they all produce, either as essays, full publications, exhibitions, and events.
Besides that panel, there are over thirty academic, cultural and touristic activities of different nature taking place in the Festival, mostly in the historic core of the city. Other participants include Antanas Mockus, Juhani Pallasmaa, Stefano Boeri, Iwan Baan and Alejandro González Iñárritu to name just a few. (Here is the full list)
