Aeropuerto Internacional General Servando Canales

Aeropuerto Internacional General Servando Canales, Matamoros (1958) Arq. Luis MacGregor Krieger

Matamoros attracted a second young architect from Mexico City, Luis MacGregor Krieger, who was affiliated with the Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Obras Públicas. The SCOP built Matamoros’s Aeropuerto Internacional, which MacGregor Krieger designed, between 1955 and ‘58. The center-periphery axis of architectural transmission visible in Matamoros reflected the centralization of Mexican political, economic, and artistic culture in Mexico City.
