CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Since TEN Arquitectos was first published in 1998, the firm founded by Enrique
Norten has soared to a position of international renown. In addition to
important competition-winning proposals--the Visual and Performing Arts Library
in Brooklyn and the Guggenheim Guadalajara, among others--Norten and his firm
have a rich variety of projects on the drawings boards: Harlem Park, a
thirty-four-story mixed-use project in Upper Manhattan; a renovation of Mexico
City's Chopo Museum, the gallery of the national university; the Busan Cinema
Complex in Korea; the National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity in
Guanajuato; and hotels and residential buildings in New York, West Hollywood,
Conceived to represent the current state of the practice, Working shows twenty
unbuilt and in-progress projects with an emphasis on the design process.
Sketches give way to study models and then to polished renderings; at each
stage in the development of a design, numerous iterations show various
directions and investigations. The collection of projects is a timely record of
the works by this notable firm.
