Building Designs in Mexico
We've selected what we feel are the key examples of Mexican Building Designs. We aim to include Mexican architecture projects that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both.
We cover completed Mexican buildings, new building designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Mexico. The focus is on contemporary Mexican buildings but information on traditional buildings is also welcome.
We have 5 pages of Mexican Architecture Designs with links to hundreds of individual project pages for specific buildings in México.

Ruta del Peregrino - updated 23 Oct 2012
Each year around two millions of people set out on their pilgrimage through the Mexican county of Jalisco, along the 117 kilometres of the Ruta del Peregrino. The route of their pilgrimage leads them from the city of Ameca, over the mountain Cerro del Obispo until the point of the Espinazo del Diablo and finally into the destination town of Talpa de Allende with the shrine of the Holy Virgin of Talpa.
Sunset Chapel, Acapulco
picture : Esteban Suárez
Two elements obstructed the principal views for this radical Mexican building: large trees and abundant vegetation, and a behemoth of a boulder blocking the main sight of the sunset. In order to clear these obstructions (blowing up the gigantic rock was absolutely out of the question for ethical, spiritual, environmental and, yes, economic reasons) the level of the chapel had to be raised at least five meters. Since only exotic and picturesque vegetation surrounds this virgin oasis, the architects strived to make the least possible impact on the site reducing the footprint of the building to nearly half the floor area of the upper level.
Santa Maria housing, Valle de Bravo

Santa Maria housing
Santa Maria is a housing development located in a historic protected site in the heart of Valle de Bravo, a small colonial city dating from 1530, which is 2 hours away from Mexico City. This historic town has a strong physical context and is found in the outskirts of a man-made lake. Our site is located a hundred yards from the church of Santa Maria Ahuacatlan, a colonial church that dates back to the XVI century.
