  • Shelter For The ImmigrantsThis contest aims to provide a space where immigrants who cross Mexican soil in direction to the United States can: rest, recover, prepare and meet their needs on their journey to the north.The ability to retain migrants by Mexican authorities on their way to the United States, according to datadecreases year by year, increasing the percentageof immigrants in Mexico.With this conclusion, the project focuses on creatinglargest amount of built-up area, with the lowest cost ofmaintenance, to meet the demand for spaces.

    The ground oor is reached by a lobby where people are received, there is a luggage storage room since security policies do not allow the access of luggage to the shelter. On the ground oor are places to meet basic needs: bathrooms and dining-room, recreational needs: living room and spiritual needs: a chapel.

    The 2nd. oor is the most private area of the project.Three rooms with bunk beds allow occupancy of 106 people.The division of rooms, allows them to be designated by gender,a security policy.Two bathrooms and two rooms with showers serve theoccupants.

    In the 1st. oor are the public areas that are related to the administration and care for immigrants. The oces and the bedroom are related to the administration, while clinics and workshops, providing assistance to immigrants, so they can be in better conditions for their trip.

  • Dynamic Facade-ProgramThis competition proposed remodeling an iconic Moscow cinema.The first I had in mind was the idea of creating a place where people not only could see movies, but create a place where you can: talk about films, study films, discuss about films, research films, live films from a protagonist point of view and not as mere spectator admiring a work of art.The building height was determined by the maximum amountpermitted by Moscow urbanization laws, these allow us tocreate a really complete program. The facade is made ofCorian boards, which can rotate in x, y and z program, to control sunlight and temperature.

  • Creating PathsLouis Barragans House-Studio is the only 20th centuryhouse declared world heritage. This competition propose a public area with an art center to regenerate Tacubayas zone, creating a relationship between the house and Constituyentes subway station.The subway exit, the sidewalk near Constituyentes Street, the area next to the electrical substation, the acces to the corridor to Barragan House -Studio and the access to Chaplutepecs Park, resembles MexicoCity complexity, which creates multiple parks, whichinterwine to create a collage of spaces.

  • Brand Point CloudFor this project they asked us for a commercial area, locatedin the courtyard of a shopping center.Due to the nature of the project, we decided to create a space, through different layers, which represented this brand literally, by expressing the idea of a bear contained by a box, wrapped as a gift.The maximum buildable area was extruded to create a crystal box, where two tensioned fabric wrapped a bear-shaped lights.The point cloud is generated by the intersection of lines whichemerge from the roof and generate points of intersection, with the silhouette of a bear.

    Bottom Left Image: During the day, the silhouette of the teddy bear is only suggested, due to contrast with sunlight. The glass cube becomes more evident because of sunlight, revealing all the layers.

    Bottom Right Image: The inside of the store appears as an over contained space, within several layers of containment. The glass cube contains an inner and an outer fabric envelop, which contains a bear.

    Bending - Opening For Light Control This project came by an invitation from JSA architecture office for a competition. The client is an Mexican apartment store called :Liverpool, which wanted to remodel their store facade, and extend the store. The faced is based on a parametric model, which uses light input to perform different bending and opening along the facade to control light, according to what the store program requires. The facade was thought as an exterior skin, which surrounds a glass facade.

  • Absolut Elevator

    Type of Project: Client - Pernod RicardCredits: AEStatus of the Project: Under Construction

    Geometric Gradient For this project, we where asked for a promotional area in an elevator. Working inside an elevator, was a challenging project because of its properties:Such a small space, with little possibility of intervention; because of security issues. These conditions lead us to create an inner skin, where openings and solids establish the space conditions. These conditions are created by light that emerges from the geometric gradient pattern generated by a parametric design, determined by a distance attractor.

  • Top Image: Front fish eye view from the inside of the elevator. The geometry vanishes from right to left. This create specific conditions of illumination, in a relatively small space, as an elevator.

    Bottom Left Image: From the top, the gradient appearance of the geometries into a silhouette of a Absolut Vodka bottle becomes clearer. There is a vanishing effect of light, into a dark area with a sudden change to a illuminated zone, where the bottle appears.

    Bottom Right Image: From the bottom, the affect of light on the steel plates are more evident. The reflective property of steel and its blurriness creates unclear reflections of the light emanated from different size holes.

  • Jameson Elevator

    Type of Project: Client - Pernod RicardCredits: AE S.C.Status of the Project: In Process

    Image Sampling For this project, the main idea center on the process of image sampling, to help us reinforce the Jamesonsbrand image. A grid of points was created over an image of old barrels of Jamesons Irish Whiskey. This point sampled the image for brightness values, and this values determined the circles diameters. This circles were controlled by mathematical easingequations, that allowed a greater control over them. These circles determined the openings, where light filtrated revealing an image.

  • Top Image: Front fish eye view from the inside of the elevator. The holes revealing an image, becomes awkward because of the splice of an image represented on a 3D space vs. a rectangular surface.

    Bottom Left Image: From the top, the small holes become more evident, these holes respond to quite different brightness values in the sampled photograph, reinforcing the 3D contradiction, with the elevator rectangular figure.

    Bottom Right Image: At the bottom, the holes with the denomination of origin of the brand, appears cropped. This area reveals some holes, which are part of the image imperfection, giving a sort of controlled randomness.

    Parametric FacadeThis project was an outsourcing job from JSA architects,who was designing a facade for a Mexican apartmentstore.They had this concept of modulation and variation,which could respond to night light and make storeentrances evident for users, which is very important inthe design of these stores.We translated these ideas into a 3D model and created colocation plans, for each one of these pieces.We also detailed the construction system for thesefacade, which was later developed by JSA Architectos.

  • Parametric LatticeFor this project we were asked to remodel an entireoffice building floor.The distribution was established by the client, who decided to have a private offices arrangement, in a building with a geometry that made it impossible to have sun light on each office.We decided to have a lobby with natural illumination,and trough this lobby the office that could not have sun light, would receive it.A parametric lattice run across the offices controlling theamount of illumination that they receive form the lobby.
