Libro libre

Libro libre

Libro Libre is a Ducolab initiative in collaboration with Buró-Buró, presented for the first time during the 2016 Mexican Design Open. It arose from a desire to carry out projects with cultural and social impact using design as a tool to generate positive changes in our environment and to improve the quality of life in our city.


  • Use design as a tool to generate strategies that help promote reading independently by making it more accessible and free.
  • Positively transform the approach to reading and reinforce cultural identity through the publications presented.
  • Emphasize the relationship between citizens and the place they inhabit through the exchange of personal narratives.
  • Encourage collaboration between characters that integrate local communication and active agents immersed in the field of art and culture.
  • Generate a sustainable itinerant space that contributes to the city, to preservation, and to the use of public space.

Since its inception it has had a presence in various public and private areas, such as the Book Fair in the Palacio de Mineria, the MUAC, Huerto Roma Verde, and Atrio San Francisco.
