Manuel Cervantes: Praxis // 10.05.21

Manuel Cervantes Cespedes founded Mexico City-based Manual Cervantes Estudio (formally CC Arquitectos) in 2004. The firm identifies itself as, “part of a constellation of Mexican architects belonging to the same generation, late heirs to Mexican Modernism and an architectural tradition that can be traced back to the first pre-Hispanic settlements.” Noted projects have included Finestre Villas, Azteca Multimodal Terminal (Mexipuerto), transit-oriented developments – Cuatro Caminos in Estado de Mexico and Chapultepec in Mexico City, as well as urban housing and private residences. Manual Cervantes Estudio is the winner of numerous awards including first place in the architectural design category in the XIX Architecture Panamerican Biennial of Quito; the Luis Barragán award from El Colegio de Arquitectos de la Cuidad de Mexico; the Medalla Anahuac regonition; and the Architectural League’s Emerging Voices Award. Manuel Cervantes received his Architecture degree from the Universidad Anahuac in Mexico.

This event is hosted by the Department of Architecture.
