This shopping center is divided in five interconnected parts wrapped up by a translucent façade. The circulation is based on twisting corridors opening towards the surrounding landscape.
The project is located in the Chinese port city of Lianyungang, in the vicinity of a new amusement park. The master-plan for this low density area, intended for tertiary use, proposes an interesting organic land fragmentation.
The plot is westbound exposed to an urban condition –a small plaza-, while surrounded by a pedestrian walkway and a river on the opposite side.

Located on the west end of Mexico City, La DespensaBosques is a space designed under two fundamental concepts: “We are aware that a successful business thrives not only on sales, but also in offering a shopping experience worth repeating”, and also “at the same time offering products that aren’t available in big supermarket chains”.

A new urban space open to the city. This project for restructuring an existing shopping centre built in 1977 responds to issues surrounding urban and landscape requalification and fits within a plan to redevelop the east side of the city. More than a shopping centre, the project involved creating a new urban space that attracts people to meet and visit, and that contributes to the expansion and enhancement of Cherbourg-Octeville.

Custore is an experimental project of exhibition pavilion that explores the areas of parametric architecture, used for the commercial market. In this project we had to deal not only with the aesthetic issues of computer-generated sculptural forms, but also with practical problems associated with the execution of the project inside a commercial building, and – most importantly – with the real clash of artistic forms and commercial market guidelines.
