Enrique Norten (March 29, 2004)

Eric Owen Moss introduces Enrique Norten. Moss suggests that there are four personalities to Enrique Norten while referencing Cuauhtémoc, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Frida Kahlo, and Luis Barragán.

Norten discusses the contemporary cultural complexity within Mexico City. He reflects on contradictions between the vocabulary of a universal architectural discourse while also understanding and recognizing the specific particularities of his work. He emphasizes his strong belief in tectonics and architecture’s existence at the moment of construction and shows a combination of smaller and larger scale projects.
