South of North projects were recently exhibited in Guadalajara, Mexico. Elina Tenho and Noora Aaltonen from Komitu Architects represented South of North in Guadalaraja and organized a student workshop to build a test wall of plastic bottles.
The exhibition pavilion in Guadalaraja was designed and built by Mexican architecture students Guillermo Pineda, Octavio Torres, Alejandro Diaz and their team. It was built using local ecological materials; wood, reed and straw. It will continue its life as a community house after the exhibition.
The South of North exhibition in Guadalaraja is organized together with Take the winter coat off – an exhibition of thirteen young designers from Aalto University whose unique pieces were inspired by Mexican culture. The exhibition is organized by Sara Pereyra and Luis Manuel Ochoa.
