MMX: Architecture and Territory by Studio MMX was established in 2010 as a collaborative based in Mexico City, focusing on applying a variety of design processes to projects of widely differing sizes. Founded by Jorge Arvizu, Ignacio del R o, Emmanuel Ram rez and Diego Ricalde, the studio prioritizes collaboration and works toward consolidating its experience with a participatory and collective dynamic. The firm develops a range of projects, from designs and installations to architecture and urban planning initiatives, tackling each project as an individual physical, financial and social challenge. This book shows the studio's commitment to understanding and addressing the problems and needs that cities and architecture around the globe are currently facing, and displays the studio's built work, showing the early concepts and processes that have resulted in a timeless architecture that is adapted to its context and creates favorable conditions on varying scales of intervention.
