The Event

ARCHMARATHON 2017 is an event dedicated to the world of design that focuses attention on architecture and interior design in Canada, USA, Central and Latin America.

In 2017 the objective is to identify a selection of 42 works in this geographic region that make people think about the most important relationship in architecture and interior design: that between design and human beings.

Before being a client, a user or broker, human beings are individuals who use, enjoy and experience the end result of the design and construction process, whether it be aimed at giving shape to a chair, an apartment, a building or a city.
