One of Mexico’s vanguard of emerging architects is Jacobo Micha, and his firm Archetonic. This first comprehensive monograph of Micha’s residential work – condominiums in the stylish, upscale Condesa and Polanco districts of Mexico City – is stunningly designed and photographed. Condos are particularly demanding for the designer, says the introductory essay, because they must work as a kind of “urban acupuncture” in the densely built city, and appeal to “a rising middle class in search of a place with all the amenities and services necessary to live on a human, pedestrian scale in the metropolis.” ENGLISH AND SPANISH TEXT.
