WOHA's multimedia exhibition, GARDEN CITY MEGA CITY: The Urban Ecosystems of WOHA, highlights two decades of the Singapore-based firm's research and architectural design strategies via sixteen intricate models, an enveloping video installation, and large-scale representations of the dense, urban garden cities. The show was launched as part of the 4-day MEXTRÓPOLI International Festival of Architecture and Urbanism's diverse programs for thousands of visitors every year in Mexico City.
Organized by Arquine and curated by Plane—Site, the immersive six-room exhibition shows in superb luminosity and great detail WOHA's large-scale buildings that are of significant relevance to the urban conditions and complexity of Mexico City and other cities expanding across the Eastern and Western Hemispheres.
WOHA co-founder Richard Hassell commented, “Latin America, Southeast Asia and Equatorial Africa are all part of the tropical belt and have the same hot and humid climate. But aside from geographical distance, there’s also a lot of diversity in language and culture, which have resulted in a communicative divide. MEXTRÓPOLI provides a platform to bridge this divide and start a conversation with our Latin American counterparts. We are excited to share a wide range of completed major projects which can be seen as prototypes for a sustainable 21st century megacity.”
