Material Focus: Hacienda Niop by AS Arquitectua and R79

This article is part of our new series "Material in Focus", where we ask architects to share with us their creative process through the choice of materials that define important parts of the construction of their buildings.

Niop Hacienda from AS Arquitectura and R79 is part architectural regeneration project part historical building involving the transformation of an abandoned industrial space into high-end tourist complex in the southeast region of Mexico. A desire to maintain the original feel of the place influenced the selection of the new materials (like steel, stone, chukum, wood and glass) in order to create new spaces for public and private use that meld with the existing structure. In this interview, we talked with Roberto Ramirez from R79 who explains more about how the material choice of the project contributed to the design and construction process.

TEN Arquitectos' New Mexican Museum in San Francisco Celebrates Diversity

Earlier this year construction started on the new home for The Mexican Museum, designed by TEN Arquitectos. Located in San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Cultural District, it will fill the first four floors of Millennium Partners’ 700,000 square foot luxury residential tower. The new museum will become a social, cultural and educational center for the promotion of Mexican and Mexican-American art and culture in San Francisco, California.

"The project encourages social commitment and celebrates diversity. The museum is a plural space via a social bond with the community’s history and culture and urban management strategies based on diverse uses and social gatherings," states TEN Arquitectos.

The museum plans to open its doors in the spring of 2019. See below for more details.
