Curator of the 'mAxico - Architectures from Mexico' exhibition at the London Festival of Architecture 2008, Renata Becerril arranged an evening with some young architects at Covadonga in La Roma. She is about to start as a curator at the Franz Mayer Museum, bringing contemporary design and architecture shows to Mexico City.

Product designer Ariel Rojo, with Avril Daniel, presented me with his 'Saving Pig' lamp. He has just collaborated with architect Isaac Broid to design a facade for a new residential building.

Rocker-turned-architect Michel Rojkind shows me new projects under construction on his iPhone.

Lorenzo Álvarez (far left) has just set up his practice in the Torre Latinoamericana, designed by his grandfather, Augusto Harold Álvarez.
