EGL1916 in Jalisco, Mexico by Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

Thursday, December 11th, 2014

Article source: Alvaro Moragrega / arquitecto

At the heart of the Colonia Americana a 5 story project is designed inspired by the industrial buildings of the inter-war period. The main façade has an orthodox abstract rhythm of void and filled spaces that do not follow any structural order. The voids themselves have a second protective lattice with falling crosses evocative of similar lattices often used in the area by the Escuela Tapatía.
