PRODUCTORA is a Mexico City based Architectural Office. Founded by four architects of different nationalities: Abel Perles (1972, Argentina), Carlos Bedoya (1973, Mexico), Victor Jaime (1978, Mexico) and Wonne Ickx (1974, Belgium). Their work is distinguished by its interest on precise geometry also on producing legible projects and a clear gesture and by the search of timeless buildings in their own material and programmatic resolutions.
PRODUCTORA 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) and Chicago (2015), 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). Last year they received the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize for emerging architects (MCHAP-emerge) for the ‘Pavillion on the Zocalo’ at the IIT in Chicago (2016).
The partners of PRODUCTORA have been lecturing on national and international events and have been involved in teaching in Mexico (Ibero, La Salle, Centro de Diseño) and in the Unites States (UCLA, IIT, GSD-Harvard). Amongst the many publications of the office, their first monography by Arquine (2010) and the 2G monography (2014) stand out.
PRODUCTORA frequently collaborates with local and international artists such as Iñaki Bonillas, Marta Minujín, David Lamelas, Rita McBride, Francis Alys, Pablo Bronstein, among others. It has done several museographies in the Beux Arts Palace of Brussels, in the Cultural Centre Clavijero in Morelia, in the Tamayo Museum, in SAPS, San Ildefonso and ARCHIVO at Mexico City.
In year 2011 PRODUCTORA founded alongside curator and art critic Ruth Estevez a space for Arquitectura called LIGA, a Platform that promotes young and emerging Latin-American Architecture.
