Together with you, we are touring the world to listen to the most celebrated architects of our time share their unique paths and talk to them about their challenges, dreams, and ideas. It is one country, two world-renowned names, and their unique stories of becoming and being an architect at each event.

On Thursday, May 20th, 2021, live at 13:00 CDT (CDMX time) / 20:00 CEST (Berlin time), we will welcome two of Mexico’s most influential architects. Register below to receive the access link to the live stream. Don’t worry – you can watch the event later via the link if you can’t join live.
