The architectural project, Ignacio Mendaro Corsini’s work, has been completed together with EUN’s team service in Mexico to guarantee the best custody of the documentary funds that are housed in the General Archive of the State of Oaxaca.
The building was built in Las Canteras, an emblematic place of great importance for the history of the city of Oaxaca de Juárez. Its conception revolved around the conservation needs of the valuable documentary collections that it would house, and the architectural project was masterfully resolved.
Proof of this are the numerous recognitions that it has obtained, such as the 2019 International Spanish Architecture Prize, or the Panorama of Works Prize of the XIV Spanish Biennial of Architecture and Urbanism.
The magnificent building and the EUN mobile storage systems for the repositories of the documentary collections, place AGEO "as an obligatory reference among the world's archives", according to AGEO Director General, Ambassador Jorge Álvarez Sources.
