Abstract:

"In the two decades since its founding in Mexico City, TEN Arquitectos has soared to a position of international acclaim, Firm principal Enrique Norten is known for a robust modern style that combines elements of high-tech: a clear, at times diagrammatic expression of function; and a concern for environmental sustainability. Conceived to represent the current state of the practice, Working: 20 Projects in Process is a dynamic presentation of photographs, models, drawings, and renderings, A vital element in Norten's design process is what he calls the "jellyfish diagram"; these graphically innovative analyses of program and site are translated, more or less directly, into final building form. Representations of the works at each phase of development offer insight into the rich variety of projects on the drawing boards." "The designs shown in Working range from museums and cultural institutions to educational facilities and commercial projects. Among them are four important competition schemes: the Guggenheim Museum Guadalajara, scheduled to begin construction in 2008; the Visual and Performing Arts Library in Brooklyn, New York; the Free Library of Philadelphia in Pennsylvania; and the Busan Cinema Complex in South Korea. Numerous works shown are currently under construction, including 1 York Tribeca, a residential building in New York City; the Chopo Museum in Mexico City, the conversion of a nineteenth-century exhibition pavilion into a twenty-first century museum; and the National Laboratory of Genomics in Guanajuato, Mexico, with public and private spaces delineated by an inscribed "fault line." The James Hotel West Hollywood in California, a master plan and buildings for the College Avenue Campus of Rutgers University in New Jersey, the breathtaking glass construction of the Center for the Indigenous Arts in Mexico City, and ten other projects complete this timely record of the work of Enrique Norten and TEN Arquitectos."--Jacket.
