The Arquine Competition No.24, MEXTRÓPOLI 2022 Pavilion, organized by Arquine has been recently opened for entries!

The Arquine International Architecture Competition calls for the design and construction of a Pavilion that, inserted in the city temporarily, manages to generate, based on its own discourse, an innovative and sustainable proposal, which allows the development of an open and public program that builds a place for the interaction between architecture and citizenship.

Participants must design a structure that complies with the requirements that specify the rules of this competition in terms of time, cost and characteristics. The MEXTRÓPOLI Pavilion will become the benchmark per se of each edition of the Festival of Architecture and City.

Submission requirements:

General plans and layouts of the project, including floor plans and sections, adequately scaled to ensure the comprehension of the plans.
Diagrams, views, sketches, renderings, or any other form of visual representation that will help explain the project.
Constructive details that are considered essential to explain the project.
A 250 word-long (max) descriptive text. Any text or description can only be delivered in either Spanish or English.

The image or board must comply with the following format: rectangular in shape, 90cm long and 60cm high (horizontal display), 72 dpi, and only .JPG will be accepted. The file must be no larger than 5MB.

Evaluation Criteria:

Competitors must project a piece that meets the conditions specified in the bases of this competition in terms of times, costs and characteristics, considering, as a fundamental part for the evaluation of the proposal, the ability to provoke and attract the public itself.

Results will be announced on February 17, 2022.
