Beauty and light are tempting. An intervention of a beautiful, ever-changing, luminous and ephemeral shape in one of Mexico City’s most historic and fashionable neighborhoods would be a welcoming and attractive reference from the park and within. The cutting-edge reputation of Makken as a media agency would be highlighted by the introduction of a retractile screen that shelters high-end fashion exhibits within its facilities. This is a chance to merge fashion’s clothing spirit with architecture. In this particular intervention, architecture is about urban beauty. It wants to be seen, to be unique and different.
