Article source: dmp arquitectura

Finishing off an alley of a popular colony at the foot of the Ajusco Hill, the house of three floors pretends to integrate itself to the context with a material of a deep social meaning, the block of concrete. The scheme was thought to exploit the maximum line of vision as possible in the public spaces within a plot of 87 m2 and a limited budget.

Article source: Michael Jantzen

This pavilion proposal was created as a tourist attraction for the California Department of Food and Agriculture. Its design is intended to sustainably celebrate the great diversity, and the future of food production in the state of California.

The shape of the large concrete structure was based on a contour map of a California hill. Various food crops are planted in raised troughs that follow the contours of the perimeter of the hill. These plants are continually changed out in order to display the wide variety of crops actually grown on farms in California.

La Planta in Jalisco, México by Agraz Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 12th, 2014

Article source: Agraz Arquitectos

Where there was once decomposed organic matter, now there is art, sports and leisure. It is the conversion of a sewage treatment plant into a multidisciplinary center.

After being built nearly two decades ago in Tlajomulco de Zuñiga, this place never really worked and saw its contents come into a rapid estate of decomposition. Years later, local authorities called for new meanings for the place, making it a great challenge.
