It is a window that opens just four days a year to experience an extraordinary city through architecture.
The celebration of an international festival fulfils the objectives of extending the coverage and cultural and civic use of the public space of cities, encouraging the community to exercise its creative, critical and participatory capacity, based on knowledge and interaction with experiences from different parts of the world that turn their gaze to our metropolis, so that it, in turn, returns it, generating an enriching dialogue. For four days, Mexico City becomes a powerful cultural, tourist and civic attraction, placing the country’s capital at the forefront of initiatives that are committed to the generation of new spaces for interaction open to citizens that promote the construction of urban culture.
