Dwell is onsite at Design Week Mexico, which takes place in Mexico City through October 24. Here are some of our favorite highlights so far.
Our first stop was the Design House, which this year is a celebration of women in design. For a sprawling 1940s house in downtown Mexico City, 23 female-run architecture and design firms were each asked to complete a room. Here, a green ceiling completes the dining room by Esencial Proyectos.
Uribe Krayer outfitted a stair hall with bulbous hanging sculptures.
C Cubica Arquitectos gave a nod to Pedro Friedeberg in the living room.
Mariangel Cochlan lit up a tiny hallway with hanging fixtures.
The Museo de Arte Moderno is hosting the educational programming during Design Week.
Spanish designer Nani Marquina speaks at the Museo de Arte Moderno.
The partners at Shanghai-based Neri & Hu present at the Museo de Arte Moderno, where their exhibition opens next week.
The Museo Rufino Tamayo, by architects Abraham Zabludovsky and Teodoro González de León, also held Design Week exhibitions.
Proyecto Tamayo, by Tatiana Bilbao, was created just behind the Museo Rufino Tamayo “to generate a dialogue between the building and the forest.”
Proyecto Tamayo both references the lines of the museum, and interacts with the trees beyond.
