Location / Parque Fundidora, MonterreyN.L., Mexico
Client / Foro Universal de las Culturas Designin collaboration with No.Mad Arq
In September 2007 Monterrey hosted a universal cultureforum. That summer I worked at a local firm, No.Mad Arquitectura, where Ideveloped a design to compete for the commission of the information modules forthe park where most of the events would be hosted.
The modules wouldbe placed on open areas and should include gift shop, first aid and ticketsales. My boss, Felipe Nuñes, thought it might be something circular with amembrane awning.
Starting from thecircular plan I decided to section it like a pie and separate the pieces,creating a nucleus which could be uniqueto each module to tell them apart, each representing a different concept of the forum. The formthen branched out from the center divided in three sections that contained thedifferent functions.
