Portal of Awareness

architect Michael Rojkind
project Installation Portal of Awerness, México City, México


This portal, conceived through spatial design and activated by city dwellers and the everyday stimuli of Mexico City’s life, has become a new public piece in one of the city’s most important avenues, Paseo de la Reforma. Nescafé commissioned eight artists (Francisco Serrano, Mario Schjetnan, Bernardo Gómez-Pimienta, Fernanda Canales, Manuel Cervantes, Alejandro Quintanilla and Alejandro Castro) to develop specific installations with the basic requirement of utilizing a maximum of 1500 metal coffee mugs.
