The year 2016 marks the thirtieth year of TEN Arquitectos. Over the last three decades, the office has designed more than 400 projects internationally, of which 1/4 have been built or are currently under construction. Regardless of whether they have been designed in Mexico or New York, each project informs the next. Founded in Mexico City by Enrique Norten in 1986, TEN (Taller Enrique Norten) Arquitectos is dedicated to the creation and research of architecture and design. Under Norten’s leadership and vision, the firm reached international stature when it opened a New York office in 2001. Since then, TEN Arquitectos has grown to over 90 members, working on a diverse array of award-winning and acclaimed architectural projects. Current commissions include MUNET (National Museum of Energy and Technology) in Mexico City, a 500,000 square foot energy institute and educational Museum; the design of a new collaborative hub for NASA at the Glenn Research Campus in Cleveland, Ohio; a new one million square foot residential development along the waterfront in East Harlem that will act to revitalize the streetscape and community around an existing retail development, New York; West End Square 30 and Square 57, two mixed-use developments in Washington, DC that incorporate a public library, fire station, and international squash center; Two Thousand Ocean, a luxury mixed-use residential development in Hallandale, FL.; a residential building in Lomas de Chapultepec in Mexico City; Betel, a synagogue in Mexico City; and various train station hubs in Mexico on a 57.7km long rail line connecting Mexico City and the Toluca Valley, which will be the first intercity passenger train line with a modern electrical transportation system of its kind in Latin America. Construction is nearly complete for Acapulco’s City Hall in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico; and Blum, a residential building in the Santa Fé neighborhood of Mexico City; and the Downtown Brooklyn Cultural District in Brooklyn, NY which includes a new residential tower, public plaza and cultural center. Recently completed projects include CENTRO University in Mexico City; Universidad Panamericana also in Mexico City; Rutgers University Business School in Piscataway, New Jersey; Mercedes House in New York; and Phase 1 of the renovation and expansion for the Amparo Museum in Puebla, Mexico.

Among those are the National School of Theater at the National Center of the Arts in Mexico City (1994 Progressive Architecture Award); the Televisa Mixed-Use Building in Mexico City (1st Prize “Mies Van Der Rohe Pavilion” of Latin American Architecture, Barcelona, Spain, 1998); the Guggenheim Museum in Guadalajara (2006 AIANY Design Award), Mexico; Hotel HABITA in Mexico City, MX (“Latin American Building of the Year” World Architecture Awards / RIBA, London 2002; Business Week / Architectural Record Awards and 2003 AIA NY Chapter Award); the NYPL 53rd Street Branch (2013 AIANY Design, Project Merit Award); Rutgers University in Piscataway, NJ (2014 AIANJ Honor Award); and Mercedes House in New York City and CENTRO University in Mexico City, MX (2016 AIANY Design Excellence Award).
