In Architecture & Design by Isabella Moreno

The #FM4C is a project from the Pedro Meyer Foundation, a museum that proposes not only to be an exhibition space, but a place of knowledge, production, training and multiple experiences and is a cultural project at the service of society and its development; a diverse, inclusive and permeable project.

The architectural project involved the reconstruction of an original industrial factory, as well as the creation of new spaces and started at the beginning of 2012. The person that was in charge of the architectural project was Mauricio Rocha who is a recognized architect, and who distinguished himself through the creation of cultural spaces throughout the country.

The museum features more than 5.000 m2 of construction; in which there are three exhibition galleries, an auditorium for 150 people, four  classrooms, a cafeteria, shops, a restaurant and a terrace that is open to the public. The museum is located in Mexico City just a few couple of blocks away from the Metro station Cuatro Caminos.

This amazing cultural place is located in what once was a plastics factory in the late 1940’s. This is one of the fastest growing areas of Mexico City, with a surrounding population of almost 3 million inhabitants. It is without a doubt one of the largest exhibition spaces in the city and it is a space that promotes the dissemination, production and regeneration of different visual languages.
