TIJUANA.- Norte 2017 Congreso Arquitectura is an event that seeks to restore unused or abandoned spaces in the city by building part of the history of Tijuana through the preservation of cultural heritage.
From Sept. 27 to Sept. 29, workshops, lectures and exhibitions will be held, where in addition to giving the raised money to the Pasitos Pre escolar Especial A.C. Kindergarden, the organizers seek to turn this event into a space where ideas and dialogue are exchanged to intervene in unused spaces.
The first edition of this event will take place at Club Aloha, located on Av. Revolución between Calle Segunda y Calle Tercera in Downtown Tijuana, a bar that was active from the 1920s to 2011, but was then closed due to a fire that consumed most of its interior structure.
Through this event, the organizers will give life to a place that is part of the city by making an artistic intervention within it, so it can serve as an example of the work that will be done in the workshops held from Sept. 25 to Sept. 27 at the Escuela Libre de Arquitectura (Free School of Architecture). The workshops confirmed so far are:
-Creativity as a form of communication
Workshops are free.
Norte 2017 will involve 12 architects, 10 national and 2 international. Check out this video to know who they are:
