Unit Trip to Mexico City Architectural Association - Intermediate Unit 12 Covering ancient Aztec sites and cutting edge art and design practices, the students were asked to compile a travelogue of their experiences in the city. Acting like forensic detectives they had to explore the urban fabric looking for themes, communities and events to stimulate their designs.
