New wave of architecture in Guatemala

So I just thought about making this thread to show some of the best recent projects built in Guatemala City, which is right now going through an architectural and urbanist boom.

You can identify 3 waves of architecture in Guatemala City: one in the 1940s, promoted by president Jorge Ubico; the second one, begining in the mid 80s, greatly influenced by the devastating earthquake of 1976; and the third one, which began around 2007.

Guatemala City is divided in numbered Zones. Zona 1 for example (commonly known as Centro Histórico) is the center of the city with the oldest buildings. The city was divided in a counter-clockwise way. Zones 22 and 23 do not exist, because those areas are part of other munipalities.

ZONA 4 - Cantón Exposición






This part of the city was built in 1897, promoted by president José María Reyna, after visiting Paris for the Universal Exposition in 1889. Back then, all the streets and avenues in the city ran from north to south and east to west. The ones in this area though, run in a diagonal way, so they are called "rutas" and "vías", instead of the usual "calles" (streets) and "avenidas" (avenues). This area fell into deep disrepair some years ago, because too many low quality bars and nightclubs opened there. Recently however, the nightclubs have disappeared and the area has been reborn as a cultural center. Many new restaurants and small cafés have opened there, artists, architects and designers moved their studios there, and many new projects are rising. This area is one of the best places for pedestrians in Guatemala City.
