Text description provided by the architects. The Anapra neighborhood in the city of Juarez Mexico is a place with richness of textures and exposed materials, where the built environment can be seen as a reflection of its people's creativity portrayed in their unique construction systems.

The raw materiality of the tilt-up concrete panels, inherits the dynamic activities and informalities found in the neighborhood, and creates an unprecedented structure which mirrors the qualities on site, becoming the building’s skin.
