Cultural interventions in Metro stations • Mexico City • in development

As part of an overall upgrade to Mexico City's Metro system, a family of objects is designed to bring knowledge underground to the everyday life of commuters. A series of exhibition showcases stimulate the dull environment of vast transit zones with curated exhibits from nearby museums. Transparent glass cases and round vitrines with distinct silhouettes stand out like sculptures announcing the cultural program. From dioramas to object display and projection, the different elements allow for a close interaction with passers-by. Like a magnifying lense curved glass elements sharpen the visitor's perception of the stories told. Its modular system of parts provides cost efficiency and flexibility in changing location.
