The space

Noviembre 23 de 2011

MODO’s headquarters, built in 1906, is located in the Colonia Roma, and is one of eight properties classified as examples of the Art Noveau style still preserved in Mexico City. Located close to the city centre, la Roma is a residential neighborhood built at the start of the 20th century.

Now, in the 21st century, the colonia Roma has become a neighborhood housing artistic spaces, cultural centers, commercial galleries, designer stores, artists’ and designers’ studios, as well as restaurants and bars, each space with an atmosphere of its own. The amount of young people interested in art and design has grown considerably over the last few years in this area. The important work of restoring heritage, in addition to other initiatives, particularly in the commercial-cultural corridor of Colima street, covering a series of stores, galleries and museums, has converted the old colonia Roma into an important centre for cultural representation in Mexico City.
