The League’s monthly First Friday events are informal social gatherings that allow members to visit the offices of leading design practices and see work on the boards.

This fall and winter, the First Friday series is shifting to a new online format and day of the week: Thursday. Expanding our reach beyond New York City, each event explores design practices that operate in multiple roles—coupling architecture with initiatives including design advocacy, fabrication research, and community engagement.

For the first iteration of the FF – Distance Edition series, the League paid a virtual visit to PRODUCTORA, a Mexico City-based architecture studio founded in 2006 by Abel Perles, Carlos Bedoya, Victor Jaime, and Wonne Ickx. In this video of the event, the founders join their colleagues Adriana Maurer and Frida Mouchlian to discuss the firm’s recent projects, as well as its work with LIGA, Space for Architecture, which promotes emerging Latin American architecture through exhibitions, workshops, and public programs.
