FR-EE Reveals Elliptical Design for Mexico's Mazatlán Museum

Fernando Romero EnterprisE (FR-EE) has revealed their proposal for the “Museo Mazatlán” in Mexico, which will be dedicated to the local culture of Mazatlán. Inspired by Mazatlán’s nickname, “The Pearl of the Pacific”, the design resembles an oyster with a pearl at its centre. This “pearl” is a geodesic dome, bringing together views of the sky with views of the city and sea.

Rojkind Arquitectos' Foro Boca Breaks Ground in Mexico

Rojkind Arquitectos has shared their latest project, Foro Boca, which broke ground yesterday in Veracruz, Mexico. Part of a masterplan that seeks to reinvigorate the surrounding area, the project is catalyzing the renovation of infrastructure. The building will hold an 850-seat concert hall, rehearsal space, a music library and offices. The architects contend that "The building appropriates the timeless expression of the concretes cubes formed by ripraps in the breakwater, assimilating them as its origin and re-interpreting them in a building made of apparent concrete, forming various areas of volume that contain the concert hall."
