PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located in Cancun, Mexico and is under construction.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
As a design team opted the use of technology to obtain a lifting of physical measurements of the volume of the building, making a series of photographic shots through a drone, and generating “Photogrammetric ” models through Autodesk Re -Cap generating a 3D model scale through photographs. Cancun and the Caribbean are places with a high risk of hurricanes. As one of the key parts of the design was to experiment with 3D building models including on a Virtual Fluid Dynamics Simulator to understand the flow behavior of winds.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The renovations was both interior and exterior, remodeling seven exhibitions rooms and the exterios fachade of the building

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Finding the intentions of the project was to investigate the best way we can transform a representative currently building for the city in the creation of events in an aspirational model that identifies with the natural and architectural context of Caribbean tourism to bring a benefit to the city . It is important to have a concept refurbished but at the same time identifying with people, the context and the Caribbean, creating a friendly but at the same time iconic building.

CHALLENGE:
It was important for the conceptualization of the project to have a free way to work to achieve the objectives of inspiration; movement of sea, air and water. Through a process of digitak experimentation and drawings and at the same time through 3dsmax modeling poligonoles with low surface density using modifiers like Mesh smooth could give us the freedom to shape with ease in finding an organic design that would later further developed by BIM technology and digital manufacturing.
