The concept stems from a creative inquiry to reimagine the purpose of public spaces and their role in strengthening the connection between city and society. The interaction between the building and its users must be imbued with intentionality to ensure it functions socially, aesthetically, and architecturally.

The Artistic Creation Center serves as a communal space for the exhibition and exchange of ideas. Here, visitors can experience installations or exhibitions, watch performances, participate in workshops, engage in buying and selling creative works, or simply take a break and enjoy a coffee. It is a hub for contemporary creation, closely linking existing architecture with art, functioning as an open laboratory that aims to provoke new modes of expression. The objective is to promote the integration and revitalization of traditional artisan techniques with contemporary expressions, fostering activities that connect with the Mexican artistic community.



The Artistic Creation Center is an intervention in an abandoned property in the Historic Center of Mexico City, repurposing architecture as a means of cultural recovery and creating a dialogue with pre-existing structures. The project aims to preserve heritage elements of significant value, such as facades, and modify later constructions that lack historical or artistic significance. This approach integrates new architecture that harmonizes with the environment and the building to be restored.

It is a versatile space designed for various activities, an open environment that interacts with historical architecture while incorporating new values inspired by Mexican craft and societal change. This initiative will enhance the development of the surrounding area, improve connectivity with tourism, and foster the innovation and improvement of public spaces.

“The city, however, does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning roads, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indetations, scrolls.”

― Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities
