Since TEN Arquitectos was first published in 1998, the firm founded by Enrique Norten has soared to a position of international renown. In addition to important competition-winning proposals–the Visual and Performing Arts Library in Brooklyn and the Guggenheim Guadalajara, among others–Norten and his firm have a rich variety of projects on the drawings boards: Harlem Park, a thirty-four-story mixed-use project in Upper Manhattan; a renovation of Mexico City’s Chopo Museum, the gallery of the national university; the Busan Cinema Complex in Korea; the National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity in Guanajuato; and hotels and residential buildings in New York, West Hollywood, and Prague.
Conceived to represent the current state of the practice, Working shows twenty unbuilt and in-progress projects with an emphasis on the design process. Sketches give way to study models and then to polished renderings; at each stage in the development of a design, numerous iterations show various directions and investigations. The collection of projects is a timely record of the works by this notable firm.
