Mediapark in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico by Volta Arquitectos

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Article source: Volta Arquitectos

The brief for the XIII Arquine International Contest asked participants design a Media Park, an ‘environment for free and safe interaction that can also be a space for culture and learning’, much in the tradition of the successful library parks in Medellin, Colombia , while reactivating an emblematic, but semi-abandoned site of Ciudad Juarez, the PRONAF polygon (National Border Program of Mexico), built in 1961 with the intention of attracting people from the neighbor city of EI Paso, Texas. The 1961 project saw two of Mexico’s most prominent architects of the time -Pedro Ramirez Vazquez and Mario Pani-design buildings which in the past 2 decades have become surrounded by parking lots, and eaten by a now decaying mall respectively. More images and description after the break.
