    Is that a house? It´s like a big “boxy-trendy” green joke! Is this the new mexican architecture? too much copy-paste fellas.

    I guess it is sort of a dorm isn’t it? Not too clear translation to English though. Hard to understand. Too bad there is nothing on the main building which makes it even harder to comment on the whole.
    I like the concept though. Lime colour is great + black give a kick to the otherwise very depressing if not blunt neighbourhood.

    I like the concept and the design of the house, but the contrast with the neighbourhood makes me feel as if an UFO has landed there!!

    As “optimistic” as tainted windows can be. Its totally out of context! The concept was there but not fully developed.
