Selected Projects

This book presents eleven collaborative projects that explore current applications of creativity and design techniques in architectural production. The old-fashioned notion of an individual with a dream of perfection is being replaced by distibuted problem solving and team-based multidisciplinary practice. Today’s design it is not longer about on designer, one client, one place, one solution.The future of global design is fundamentally collaborative. Cristian Lera was born in Mexico City where he worked for Fernando Romero, Derek Dellekamp and Nava+Nosti, and collaborating independently on projects with other exponents of Mexican architecture, as Michel Rojkind, and Chris Luce Dickinson.

the art juansoriano museum

Located in a beautiful triangular garden, the lot is oriented to the west, towards the historic center of the city of Cuernavaca. Despite its central position, the difference in levels and steeper slope hinder access and the the city. The future plan of rehabilitation of the municipal government of the area creates the potential for a future connection of 3 elements: Municipal Market Mario Pani, Zocalo and future Museum Juan Soriano. It is proposed to demolish the existing buildings of architectural value to increase the green areas.

By distributing the mass in the perimete, the garden maintains its quality and breath. At the same time, the characteristic triangular shape of the land is marked, and its orientation towards the center of the city preserved. HANDLING THE PERIMETER In the field abound leafy trees, some centuries old. The deformation of the perimeter allows built organically organize around existing trees, creating a strong relationship between art and nature, an element present in the work of Juan Soriano. The figure of the building becomes part of the organic nature of its lines, becoming its identity.

“The Museum integrates art & nature. Honoring the artist Juan Soriano, and its source inspiration. “

“...in every case we are concerned with something marked by three characteristics: (1) it is to the highest degree light; (2) it is in motion; (3) it is a vector of informaction.” I. Calvino Our project delivers an important fact, this is an evolving function within a changing form, this inflatable structure is dependant of the site, in it’s best changing under the characteristics of the available architectural space;

it doesn´t matter if we fill the object with air and chain it to the surroundings, or inflating it with helium to unlish the cover, letting the weather do it’s thing, we think even keeping the cover away during a nice sunny day. This is living architecture... The project is the blended result of a recicled PVC pavillion and recicling the actual architectonic space.

“...is understood as a Modern Agora, where the center of the event configures the flock and at the same time the pavillion’s facade prevails omnipresent...”

Team: Cristian Lera, Ernesto Nava, Miriam Nosti Year: 2011 Client: CityVision Magazine Program: Culture Location: Italy Area: 78.95m2 Type : Pavilion

Ours is a limpet... it will manage it’s own way to deliver the function, transforming and deforming, climbing or floating, grabbing itself to any available architecture, never mind the weights, people, users are the ones to keep this object ground-tied. The aim; to make people read through this project something “happening” inside it whenever it’s inflated; as we do when we see a group of people lifting a circus carp, the action of inflating the pavillion may result a joyful event as it´s essence. PFFF can be either attached to walls, structures or poles; in a complete stage it has to have the three rings inflated, but it can also be programmed with at least the ground level ring, the center of this basic structure is supposed to have an inflating device, so as users walk through it will also be inflating the object, this doesn’t mean the object can’t be machine-pumped. The second and third rings are designed for weather protection, the height to be lifted is determined by the site and surroundings, and also by the program, the requirements of each event will solve how tall the PVC building will raise. The inner part of the ground-ring has its own fused sitting spaces, for we think the project must not use chairs or any other kind of furniture other than the perimeter itself.

Peru is on a virtuous circle of economic growth. Foreign investment is investing in the mining, hydrocarbons and large infrastructure projects. Export earnings from commodity boom has provided tax revenues and underpinned the currency, allowing public investment to record levels and the domestic market for consumer products of all kinds to take off. The result has been eight years of growth averaging 7% annually, faster than anywhere else in Latin America. Peru was designated to host the Annual Meeting of the Inter-national Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank (WB) in 2015, announced tonight the chairman Ollanta Humala.

Cross defines sacred zone

Volumes and plaza

Office: FR-EE Project Leader: Brian Slocum Team: Fernando Romero, Mauricio Ceballos, Brian Slocum, Cristian Lera, Guillermo Paredes, Raul Soria, Andrea Martinez Year: 2013 Client: Archdiocese of Miami Program: Culture Location: Miami, USA Area: 1,442.28m2 Type: Church

Located in a suburb of Miami, Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church will become the new home for a multicultural parish of approximately 1,500 worshippers. The design is inspired by the chapels of the renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragán – massive religious buildings with interior gathering spaces cloistered from the exterior. In order to distinguish the church within this context and to maintain a presence at different scales, the main sanctuary building will take the form of a pure, abstract golden form 75 feet in height floating above the landscape. An exterior plaza will provide space for outdoor gatherings and worship. Three important conceptual ideas have guided the organization of the project. The first is the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe, which is one of the most recognizable icons in all of Latin America and has been an inspiration from the beginning of the project.

+ The texture and color of the exterior is meant to evoke Her flowing robes as well as the rays of heavenly light emanating from the icon. As in all religious structures, the cross is an important element, and we have allowed it to influence all aspects of the planning of the project, from the cruciform site organization, to the design of the aluminum profiles of the golden cladding. Finally, the golden proportion has been used to govern the proportions of the plan and elevations of the church. This mathematical ratio has been employed throughout history to provide rationality, beauty, and order in architecture and the arts, and here serves to join the ineffable and spiritual with the terrestrial.

The Quotes of the Virgin of Guadalupe will be included along the covered entrance.”Am i not here who am your mother” A Sliding Golden Gate of golden crosses will separate the covered walkway from the plaza and allow the church to be closed off for security. Icon of the Virgin of Guadalupe will appear as a window on the east facade facing the plaza. The window will allow light to enter both the main sanctuary and the daily chapel. Stations of the Cross The fifteen stations of the cross will be located in a circuit around the plaza. Covered Entrance Wordships are allowed to enter through the covered walkway.

On the edge of metropolitan Miami, Doral sits between the urban and the rural, the natural landscapes of the beach and the unique beauty of Florida’s Everglades. Doral lies on the flight path for Miami International Airport, meaning the site will also be more visible from the air. The elevated Turnpike to the west of the site gives the site an additional vantage-point that most churches do not have: commuters and tourists will catch a glimpse of the building as they speed by at 75mph. AXONOMETRIC INTERIOR DETAIL ThIs cut-away section shows the elements of the construction including the structural steel trusses and concrete walls, skylights and roof, and the vertical interior screen that forms a light baffle and contains the 28 chapels dedicated to the latin american virgins along the side aisles.

I was born in Ciudad Satelite, a middle-class suburban area located in the State of Mexico, designed by one of the biggest Mexican architects; Mario Pani and influenced by Luis Barragan. But basically I grew up in Mexico City, so I‘ve been a mix between cultures, a product of the metropolis.My Architecture is influenced by the weather, the people, the corruption, and the city. After High School I decided to live in Toronto for a while, exposing my vulnerability and learning from my mistakes. Studied in Mexico City attended at Universidad La Salle School of Architecture, graduated with honours under academic excellence. In 2011 had the first approach to real clients, competitions and design. Collaborating at Nava+Nosti Arquitectos, leading 3 residence projects until its construction, participated in PFFF! CityVision competition back in 2011, awarded with honorable mention. Moving forward in my carreer , I started working with Fernando Romero at FR-EE in Mexico City, entered the company as a Junior Architect and later on leaded projects as Museo Soriano, Telcel Offices, UNO TV, and National Laws University.
