Palma is a young architecture office based in Mexico City and Sayulita.
It was founded by Ilse Cárdenas (FONCA Young Creators Grant Program 2020), Regina De Hoyos, Diego Escamilla (FONCA Young Creators Grant Program 2019). and Juan Luis Rivera, all of whom studied at the UNAM School of Architecture.
The practice is geared towards finding integrated and individual solutions to each architectural problem. Their approach is based on a detailed analysis of the immediate context and a design process which is open to experimentation and exploration. The result is a constant search towards an architecture of atmospheres which move people and truly belong.
Some projects which stand out are: Community Center in San Pedro Apatlaco, first prize in an open-call competition, the exhibition design for “MXCD01-Presente” at Archivo’s Diseño y Arquitectura. “AROS” pavilion/playground for kids in the historic center of Mexico City, result of the “Juguetes Urbanos” competition.
Currently, they are developing projects of different scales across Mexico.
Palma was shortlisted in the LIGA competition as well as the Arquine Pavilion competition. They were selected as one of the five finalists to submit a proposal for the “Feria Internacional de las Culturas Amigas”, a yearly international fair held in Mexico City’s, “Zócalo”, the country’s most important public square. In 2019 they were longlisted for the Royal Academy Dorfman Award given by the Royal Academy of Arts in London. Also in 2019 they were shortlisted in the Folly/Function competition “KIOSK” organized by the Architectural League of New York.
Their work has been published in national and international media. They have been invited to give different lectures and workshops across the mexican territory. Palma recently participated in the Architecture Forum “Afuera” celebrated in Beijing, China.
