What: an exhibition that showcases the architectural projects of the award-winning Mexican architect and his firm, TEN Arquitectos.
Where: MARCO: Museo De Arte Contemporáneo De Monterrey, in Monterrey, Mexico.
When: July 3rd to October 2008
From the initial idea to the ribbon-cutting, the sketches, maquettes,
plans and projections of each building show the stages of gestation of
a new being, the processes and variations, formed through the suggested
feedback during its different phases, in which it adapts itself and
adjusts to the setting that it will occupy.

Architecture, being an endeavor of human creativity, has made a place for itself within contemporary art by its use of forms and materials in a search to satisfy the senses beyond a mere shelter.
TEN Arquitectos, the firm founded by Norten in 1986, characterizes itself by favoring modernity and at the same time making use of tradition, both in small-scale projects such as furniture designs to entire living, commercial and urban spaces.
Along the way the firm has received numerous awards and recognitions that acknowledge its talent, such as those that will be on view in this exhibition.
