Designed by Rojkind Arquitectos and located in Mexico City, the Portal of Awareness is part of a series of public installations in the city, each of which was tasked with using a maximum of 1500 coffee mugs. Rojkind’s installation combines that most ubiquitous construction material - rebar - with a different shaded mugs to create a weaving form that appears to be moving, though it is in fact static.
Some people might look at such a thing and say that it has no purpose. But in reality, it’s purpose is create fascination and a sense of whimsy for the both the citizens and visitors alike. I’d venture to say that Rojkind achieved that.
