Iconomics: Cultural Center of the Americas, Mexico City, Spring 2011
Iconic Cultural Confoundry
This project concerns the creation of an icon which situates somewhere between the cynical alien building and the perpetual life of the city as it operates.
It is a iconic building in every way while its regularized geometry reflects a regularity of the city itself. Its interior program fits within the space delineated by two orders of organization which produce the grand form from two sets of seven units.
