José Vasconcelos Public Library in Mexico City by Alberto Kalach of TAX
Cited as one of the most versatile and prolific architectural voices in Mexico City today, Alberto Kalach co-founded the firm Taller de Arquitectura X (TAX) in 1981. His concern for the emerging problems of his vast native city has inspired projects at a range of scales, from his minimal $5,000 houses to housing developments and urban master plans.
Kalach’s most ambitious speculative plan, México Ciudad Futura, is the largest project ever conceived for Mexico City.
