The Foro Boca concert hall in Boca del Río, is located at a prominent site where the Jamapa River and the Gulf of Mexico converge.
Boca del Río and the adjoining historic port of Veracruz have long been commercially significant but have also become a strategic zone for organized crime. In order to foster social cohesion and reduce illegal activities, local authorities started a philharmonic orchestra with two main objectives: to provide high-quality concerts and offer music programs for children. In 2014, Rojkind Arquitectos won the commission for this federally funded permanent facility in an invited competition.

Nestlé Application Group
This Mexican building located in Queretaro’s industrial zone, is a laboratory for development of new products, packaging center and a satellite office for its product technology center located in Maryville which focuses on the development of new drinking products.
While the exterior is opaque, metallic and impenetrable in appearance, the interior of these boxes painted in different colors, have an almost theatrical quality to them.
The construction of these buildings implied the translation of spatial forms was to be done in a different constructive manner, in a simple almost colloquial way, which allowed the local workers to fabricate the foam like spherical space from the physical intersection of the spherical cupolas made of rebar rings and arches.
