Mexico City Architecture Guide app launchedBy Valeria Bigurra Peñavera
With this mobile app people will be able to know all the relevant information about some of the buildings of the CDMX.
Mexico City is famous for many things, and among them is its imposing architecture ranging from historic buildings such as the Palace of Fine Arts, to the more modern, like the Soumaya Museum.
However, very few people know the history behind these buildings, where they stand and who built them, and that is why the Ministry of Culture in collaboration with the Editorial and International Journal of Architecture of Mexico, Arquine, launched the "Guide Of Architecture Mexico City ".
The app has more than 150 information sheets on different spaces and infrastructure of the CDMX that include description, photographs, references, year of construction and geolocation which will help users to locate them in the city.
The guide is divided into the seven zones in which Mexico City was divided:
1. Centro-Doctores-Tabacalera-San Rafael
3. Condesa-Roma-Tacubaya-San Miguel Chapultepec
4. Buenavista-Tlatelolco-Zacatenco-Villa de Guadalupe
5. Del Valle-Nápoles-Coyoacán-San Ángel
6. Ciudad Universitaria-Pedregal-Tlalpan
7. Santa Fe
The app has a map that offers routes to reach each building and includes data of those built from the Revolution to the present, covering the last 100 years of the capital, which without doubt makes it the perfect tool for those who love architecture.
According to its creators, it is expected that a version that includes more periods of architecture in Mexico will soon be released, but for the moment, users will also be able to find the contact information of the building's administration in it, as well as the schedules in which they can be visited.
"Mexico City Architecture Guide" was presented during the fourth edition of the Mextrópoli architecture festival, and is available in English and Spanish for free for iOS and Android.
