TEN Arquitectos/Enrique Norten: Lines of Investigation
Enrique Norten is often hailed as Mexico's most dynamic architect, but, with several new buildings in the United States, he might more properly be called one of the Americas' most exciting architects. Celebrating thirty years of practice, this bilingual survey of recent projects includes BAM Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District, the Rutgers University master plan, Amparo Museum, Centro University, Universidad Panamericano, and a dozen others. With offices in Mexico and New York, TEN Arquitectos mines the forces—migration, trade, economic and information networks—shaping our cities, creating bold forms that mark skylines and activate streets from Mexico City to Brooklyn. This book explores the firm's evolution as an international practice and the three "lines of investigation" that propel its work—architecture as public space, infrastructure, and territory. Contributors include a who's who of Mexican and American design thinkers: curator and educator Barry Bergdoll; architect Elizabeth Diller; architect and editor Alejandro Hernández Gálvez; architectural historian Xavier Guzmán Urbiola; historian, essayist, and publisher Enrique Krauze; and architect Thom Mayne.
