PRODUCTORA is a Mexico City–based architectural studio founded in 2006 by Carlos Bedoya (1973, Mexico), Wonne Ickx (1974, Belgium), Victor Jaime (1978, Mexico), and Abel Perles (1972, Argentina). The studio’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.
PRODUCTORA has been recognized by the Architectural League of New York with the Young Architects Forum (2007) and Emerging Voices (2013) awards. In 2016, they received the Mies Crown Hall Americas Prize for Emerging Practice from Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago for the Pavilion on the Zocalo. In 2018, PRODUCTORA was recognized with the Oscar Niemeyer Award for Latin American Architecture for the Teopanzolco Cultural Center, a project realized in collaboration with Isaac Broid. That same project also received the Simon Architecture Prize – Living Places in Barcelona, a recognition organized in collaboration with the Fundació Mies van der Rohe that celebrates collective places in which public and community life develops.
The partners of PRODUCTORA have taught at local institutions such as the Universidad Iberoamericana, the Centro de Diseño, TEC de Monterrey, and the Universidad La Salle in Mexico City as well as international universities such as the University of California, Los Angeles, Illinois Institute of Technology, and Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
In 2011, PRODUCTORA founded, alongside curator and art critic Ruth Estévez, LIGA – Space for Architecture – Mexico City, a platform that promotes emerging Latin American architecture through exhibitions, conferences, and workshops. www.liga-df.com
