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.?
