Cutting edge design & acoustics achieved with a low budget in Pueblo de Xoco

Inspired by the movement of a conducting baton, the building design is composed of 5 concrete roofs moving up and down in harmony to give shape, space and light to the project. Each roof represents the lines of a pentagram, always straight, constant and parallel until the composer intervenes. The architects explained that they aimed to create a project "that lives for the trees as the trees will live as a part of it, we cannot think about a dark and traditional hall when the project is being developed in such a beautiful forest located in Coyoacán, Mexico, a unique place that has to be exploited in a good sense."

The volume opens and closes as tree branches with the wind, letting the sun rays pass through, which reduces emissions by 10 tons of C02 annually. The architects wanted the visitors to discover the project through each step they make, the natural and artificial. They will walk around the space with their minds clear, looking, watching, feeling how the hall is more than just concrete and steel; walking through is an invitation to the reflection and harmony, is an invitation to discover the magical world of music.

The building was born to be the cradle of the new Mexican music, its shape prioviding unique acoustics; this is the only concert hall in town which has reverberation time range from 1 to 1.5 seconds, allowing symphonic performances as well as rock concerts. The architects say of the project: "The building is not a whim, it is not fashion, it is just the sound traveling through the wind, going around each space, each seat, each corner, giving shape to every dream; every song giving shape to The Roberto Cantoral Music Hall."

Iñaki Echeverria's creation enters 1st phase

Iñaki Echeverria, one of Mexico's emerging architects and landscape urbanists, is the creator of the original project known as Texcoco Lake Ecological Park in Mexico. The architects believe that Texcoco Park will become the largest urban park in the world, reclaiming over 143 million sq m for public spaces and green infrastructure.

This month the newspaper REFORMA, a Mexican journal, announced the construction of the first phase of the Texcoco Lake Ecological Park project. This area, located in the outskirts of the metropolitan zone of Mexico City can be reclaimed as a new ecology that incorporates nature, culture, and infrastructure: a cultural ecology.

This project has been already presented at Harvard University, in the lecture series entitled Landscape Series (spring 2011), at UPenn in the symposium 'In the Terrain of Water' (spring 2011), and at the UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico) at the 3rd International Congress of Architecture and Environment (fall 2011).

These lands, formerly occupied by the Texcoco Lake, are key to the hydrological balance of the Mexico City Valley; the site contains 11 rivers, 14 canals of waste water, 4 water treatment plants and 5 lakes. The biggest water element, the Nabor Carrillo Lake, spreads out over 2259 acres and is a precedent to the ecological restoration of the site.

The goal is to reclaim the site as the most important green piece of infrastructure of the valley, which will make it possible to reconcile the city with its geography, incorporate the hydrological cycles as part of the metropolitan area operation, eliminate the threat of floods for the population, and contribute to re-establish the native biota. This project will be able to revitalize social, cultural and education networks of the most neglected area in Mexico City.

Reforma 27 / Alberto Kalach

Architects: Alberto Kalach
Location: Mexico City, Mexico
Project Year: 2010
Photographs: Yoshihiro Koitani

The residential tower on Reforma 27 was designed in collaboration with ICA following the classic principles expressed five hundred years ago by Vitruvius; beauty, strength, and utility.

The structure, essential for any tower, is used as the expression of the building: it is the support, the container of the spaces and also the façade, which creates the thermal protection and the intimacy necessary for the apartments.

The open floorplans permit the distribution of different modular apartments measuring from 40 m2 to 240 m2. At street level, a tall commercial portico relates the tower to Paseo de la Reforma. Above, a tropical plant greenhouse and a pool with a striking underwater mural painted by Marco Kalach, relate it to the city and its volcanoes.
