PRODUCTORA is a Mexico City based architectural studio founded by Abel Perles (1972, Argentina), Carlos Bedoya (1973, Mexico), Victor Jaime (1978, Mexico) and Wonne Ickx (1974, Belgium). PRODUCTORA´s work is distinguished by an interest in precise geometries, the production of clearly legible projects with limited gestures and the search for timeless buildings in their material and spatial resolutions.

 

The office is working on projects in Mexico and abroad, ranging from residential projects to public buildings. Its work has been presented in the Architectural Biennials of Beijing (2006), Venice (2008, 2012, 2018) and Chicago (2015, 2017), in the National Art Museum of China (Beijing) and in the Victoria and Albert Museum in London (UK). PRODUCTORA has been awarded by the Architectural League of New York with the Young Architects Forum (2007) and the Emerging Voices (2013). In 2016 they received the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize for emerging architects for the ‘Pavilion on the Zocalo’ at the IIT in Chicago. The Teopanzolco Cultural Center, received the American Architecture Prize in Cultural Architecture (2017), Oscar Niemeyer Award 2018, and the First International Prize at the Biennial of Architecture of Quito 2018.

That same project also recently received the Simon Architecture Prize 2018 Living Places in Barcelona, a recognition curated in collaboration with the Fundacio Mies van de Rohe that celebrates collective places in which public and community life develops. Amongst the many publications of the office, their first monograph by Arquine (2010) and the Monograph by Architecture Magazine 2G (2014) stand out.

PRODUCTORA has been actively involved in teaching both in local Universities such as the Universidad Iberoamericana, Centro de Diseño, TEC de Monterrey and Universidad La Salle in Mexico City as well as abroad. The partners of PRODUCTORA have been teaching studios at UCLA - California, IIT - Chicago and Harvard GSD - Cambridge.

In 2011 PRODUCTORA founded, alongside curator and art critic Ruth Estevez, LIGA - Space for Architecture - Mexico City, a platform that promotes emerging Latin-American architecture through exhibitions, conferences and workshops.
