Some years ago I had the opportunity to visit the city of Oaxaca. I'd visited before a couple of times, but this time was different. At the time I was assistant lecturer to a couple of courses at Universidad Iberoamericana's architecture school. FORO ENTRE, an academic architectural forum, was taking place so a bunch of teachers and students took the opportunity to take a break from the city and enjoy the great food and places that the city of Oaxaca has to offer. We attended several lectures at great locations, met local artists, and wandered through the recently finished buildings and open spaces. Its been around 6 years of that occasion, but digging thru my files I found the photos I'd taken and decided to share them.

What I like of these photographs is that they capture a mix of the rich mix of textures that the city and its surroundings has to offer. From vernacular architecture to modern buildings, and from vegetation to perfectly cut stone, you can always find new components that constantly redefine Oaxaca.
