Once again, Arquine opens its annual competition to architects and students. The theme of the 9th International Arquine Competition is “A Metropolitan Infographic Center”. The competition has garnered wide recognition in Mexico and abroad over the past eight years. Of the 760 participants who enrolled last year, 70% were from Mexico, 10% were from the United States, while the remainder hailed from some 32 different countries. Different urban and architectural themes are addressed each year in the competition: “A Site Museum for Tulum”, “A Pedestrian Border Crossing” and a “Re-Inhabiting the Center of Mexico City”, among others.
