A few days ago we shared a brief exploration of Arquitectura/México, one of the magazines that marked a new era in the dissemination of architecture in Mexico. To expand this study we thought it worthwhile sharing the work of compilation that Dr. Carlos Ríos Garza has carried out in collaboration with the UNAM.

The Faculty of Architecture at the UNAM—alma mater of Juan Sordo Madaleno, Luis Barragán, and so many more—holds a vast online collection of published content on modern and contemporary Mexican architecture, from the start of the 20th century up to the 1980s, with the aim of providing useful, handy information in an open-access format.

According to its founder, the  Raíces Digital Collection has “the objective of preserving the experiences of architects recorded in specialist journals to offer them to cultural researchers in general, and not only to architecture researchers, professors and students who may apply this knowledge practically in construction.”

The Colección Raíces Digital includes the following 15 titles:

  1. Anuario SAM
  2. Arquitectura y lo demás *
  3. El Arquitecto*
  4. Publicaciones del Autogobierno
  5. Traza
  6. Arquitectura México*
  7. Planificación
  8. Diseño UAM
  9. El Arte y la Ciencia
  10. Calli*
  11. Arquitectura y Decoración
  12. Espacios*
  13. Arquitectos de México*
  14. Cuadernos de Arquitectura INBA
  15. Cemento
