Located in the historic center of the city of Merida; the site consists of an area of particular dimensions (5 x 40m) which caused difficulties for the design. The premise of the project is to make clear the contrast between the present and the past of the building. The strategy involved the use of new elements that integrate a contemporary character in harmony with the original historic elements characteristic of the era in which the house was originally built. Inside, a wall made up of a collage of floors refer to the trajectory of the office, as mosaics recovered from several works by H. Ponce Architects in the Historic Center of Merida are used.

"La Línea Borrosa" Proposes a Shared Space at the US-Mexico Border

In 1971, Friendship Park was created at the western coast of the US-Mexico border, a small strip of land where the United States and Mexico were separated by just a single chain-link fence to offer friends and family in San Diego and Tijuana a place to meet and spend time together. The park was a small acknowledgement of the effect of border politics on human lives; all the same, border politics made a dramatic comeback in 2009, when the US created a second fence, severely limiting access to the park. Eight kilometers (5 miles) to the East, pedestrians wishing to cross the border are funneled alongside twenty lanes of traffic, over a bridge with high fences on either side.

These less-than-ideal conditions led Patrick Cordelle, a bachelor's student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to design "La Línea Borrosa" (The Blurred Line), a combined pedestrian border crossing and shared national recreation space for the Tijuana-San Diego coastline.

ISAD Students Revitalize Broken Water Source in Mexico with Urban SPA

After several years spent broken and unusable, the local water source at Parque Urueta in the center of Chihuahua, Mexico, has been revitalized by the Instituto Superior de Arquitectura de Chihuahua’s (ISAD) Taller del Desierto student workshop. This year’s version of the annual workshop—called Urban SPA—has teamed up with PKMN architectures and Memela, as well as civil association Impulsados Capacidades and materials sponsor A+bien.

In an effort to create “a collective imaginary for the future,” the workshop began with initial ideas, like shaded areas for parents to drop off children for school, steps to link resting and sports areas, and bench maintenance actions. However, after neighbors voiced concerns about the park’s broken public water source, the workshop’s focus shifted towards the Urban SPA concept.

FR-EE Proposes to Restore Mexico City Avenue with Cultural Corridor Chapultepec

Avenida Chapultepec is one of the most important and historic avenues in Mexico City. Once a calm Pre-Hispanic road that ran along the city's aqueduct, Avenida Chapultepec is now high-speed avenue, "negligent to its context and historic richness." Thus, FR-EE / Fernando Romero EnterprisE, FRENTE arquitectura and RVDG arquitectura + urbanismo have joined forces to propose a pedestrian-centric masterplan that aims to transform the congested avenue into an efficient, multimodal roadway that features an elevated promenade lined with commercial and cultural programs that are powered by renewable energy and connected by lush landscaping. Read on to learn more about the proposed Chapultepec Cultural Corridor (CCC).

"This is the most important creation of a new public space from the Central Alameda, it will be an area unprecedented in the city and space of more urban diversity in Mexico City." - Fernando Romero, general FR-EE Fernando Romero Enterprise
