The project is based on an analysis and a study of the local neighborhood market. Morales architects designs a prototype with a risky proposal to the existing criteria and customs, minimizing the commercial without suspending certain traditional factors, since this plays an important role in the risk-time-cost of sale with a limited and controlled budget based on experimental criteria.


Society is currently experiencing a constant growth but a tradition problem that is somewhat complex to change, for the office it is important to passively experience the MX prototype by fusing a design criterion across natural elements and spatial lines starting from a composition that it concatenates the concepts of the form, without drastically inhibiting the common visual and tangible dwelling.
