Text description provided by the architects. A new building for Nestlé by Rojkind Arquitectos. After their impressive Chocolate Museum, they got the commission to design a new facility on the city of Querétaro, that includes laboratories, offices, and auditorium and a tasting area.

One of the design constraints came from the fact that the center of Querétaro was declared as World Heritage by the UNESCO on 1996. So, the new building was required to have a portico with arches. Rojkind faced this by re interpreting both the portico and the arches, by excavating a series of  intersected spheres from orthogonal buildings,  excavations which repeated conform an open and continuous space.

At first view the result of these complex shapes would have required digital fabrication, but a simple system of semi spherical domes made out of steel arches and rings allowed for an easy construction with local workers.

I saw this one during a Michel Rojkind conference back in October, when construction was just starting, it turned out to be a fast construction.
