Please describe the project specifications

The project was conceptualized as a venue for events, from small concerts to dinners in the middle of one of the best areas of Mexico City surrounded by restaurants and shopping malls in a building complex where people can interact as a public space.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

The client request for a unique shape where the structure becomes the main icon from the building complex.

What is unique or complex about the project?

The project is unique because the design of the shape was made to be integrated into the surrounding landscape. Special type of parametric algorithms were applied to fulfill all the necessities of design, structural and environmental behavior alongside with practical and fabrication requirements. The steel elements were designed in special lengths to reduce waste of material. The roof structure is supported with four custom designed tree-shaped columns from five to fourteen meters height.
