Tecamachalco Competition México

Design: Pascal Arquitectos

This is a private invited competition in which we had ten days to submit the proposal. Somehow this short time period is not usual for this size of project, but we think it also helps the convener to measure the speed of response of those invited.

In these cases developers call the architects to compete and see who gets better potential. The first requirement is to accommodate the most sellable area allowed by legislation.

Architecture and its shape is not the will of the architects, but the translation of a prediction of what the judges understood as the aspiration of the market.

This project itself consists of two towers, each with two elevator cores, that comes from the necessity to provide the best surroundings and making the most of these view of the canyon. These towers have the chance to be subdivided into four if necessary for logistics and finance.

The facades are rotated to avoid west, we thought that recreational services would work better in the roof, besides there would be no need to have a separate specific building.
