LIGA, Space for Architecture, is an independent initiative founded in Mexico City in 2011 by Carlos Bedoya, Ruth Estévez, Wonne Ickx, Victor Jaimes and Abel Perles that promotes Latin American contemporary architecture through exhibitions, conferences and workshops. LIGA was created as a curatorial platform in order to stimulate the experimentation in relation to the architectural discipline and its possibilities as a discursive practice, expanding and establishing connections with other disciplines.
