On a 59,740 sq. ft. Plot several schemes where developed in order to study the intricate work relationships that the program might fetch. “The patio building”, “The tower and the low building”, the “Pavilion Scheme”, “The Atrium Convey”, “Maximum Area Concentration” and so on... All of them are entrench on a “production/consumption” food employee system that makes part of the proposed culture of work for this new office development.
Isolated at the “Mexico-Veracruz” main highway, the new campus office will produce the majority of the food needed to feed the totality of the employees at lunch time. Workless spread nearest communities will work the crops, so the land will be “rented” as a par for a corporate effort to impulse local development, and employees will be encourage to participate into the care of these plantation areas.
The interior patio provides shelter and temperature control over the main volumes. A very unique vegetal palette is design to retain water and provoke ventilation with help of a louver like door system that encircles the main patio as “movable arcades” for the work interiors space.
