In the years since its 1985 founding, the architectural firm TEN (Taller de Enrique Norten) Arquitectos has altered not only the face of Mexico City but also the international perception of Mexican architecture. Partners Enrique Norten and Bernardo Gómez-Pimienta are known for their modernist compositions, often characterized by light materials, complex forms, and technical innovation. Yet they have not abandoned the formal and material heritage of traditional Mexican architecture. This updated edition includes all the built works featured in the first edition, along with hotels, residences, and schools built since 1998, including the acclaimed Hotel Habita in Mexico City (2000), the Educare Sports Facilities in Guadalajara (2001), and two houses.
