Harry Allen Design Diary

Mexico: Day 2

This morning I spoke at the Industrial Design College at UNAM, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México. I showed my work and talked a bit about what I hope to accomplish on the Mayan Workshop. The school is just beautiful – a classic industrial design program with equipment to match. It is arranged around courtyards so each of the studios are light filled. Light is a beautiful part of life in Mexico City.

A few students took me on a tour of the school, and I wish I had seen more. The buildings around the design school embody the 20th Century Mexican social program. Education, architecture, and art for the people!

The students bought me some chips with hot sauce.

After which I had a very nice lunch with the faculty.

After which I went back to the hotel to rest up.

I’ve got much to see in Mexico City tomorrow.
