Gosh i’m so happy to be part of the Postopolis! adventure again. The first edition was held in NYC at Storefront’s gallery space. Last year we had a stellar cast (will definitely miss Bryan, Dan, Geoff, David and David who could not make it this time) and were freezing our typing fingers on the rooftop of the spectacular and very chichi Standard hotel in downtown Los Angeles. This year, it’s the courtyard of the Museo Experimental El Eco that will host our informal discussions, interviews, slideshows, presentations, films and panels focusing on an interdisciplinary approach of architecture and urban space.

Every evening we will be interviewing some of Mexico Cityʼs most influential thinkers and practitioners – including architects, city planners, artists and urban theorists but also military historians, filmmakers, photographers, activists and musicians. The talks will be conducted in either Spanish or English, and translations will be available.

After each session some of Mexico Cityʼs most influential music bloggers will host an after-party.

The Postopolis crew this year is:
Cassim Shepard from Urban Omnibus , Daniel Hernandez from Intersections, Ethel Baraona Pohl from DPR Barcelona, Gabriella Gomez-Mont from Toxico Cultura, Guillermo Ruiz de Teresa at Tomo, Jace Clayton aka DJ /rupture of Mudd Up! whom i first met last year at Postopolis LA (super happy he’s going to be there again), Nicola Twilley of Edible Geography fame, Sam Jacob who writes one of my favourite blogs Strangeharvest, Wayne Marshall from Wayne & Wax and me.
