Estudio fi, Instituto Alumnos in Mexico City

An obsolete industrial structure in the Mexican capital, formerly used as a warehouse, has been turned into an art foundation center by the local firm estudio fi, headed by Fernando Ituarte. Located in the Jardines del Pedregal residential district, the cultural venue contains multipurpose spaces for exhibitions but also educational activities like workshops, audiovisual projections, and conferences. Access is through a translucent facade of Vitroblock glass bricks that filter daylight coming into the flexible interior. The large exhibition hall plays with the position of the art pieces, giving rise to different areas. These artworks hang from rails that allow redistribution. The last bay is freed up to make room for a workshop zone. Finally, a sequence of patios is added to the composition to lighten the preexisting structure of concrete and include areas with water and volcanic stone, of the kind found in this part of the city.
