URBANISM Project 01 Celaya is an urban regeneration project that attempts to rescue two historical railways that will cease to run in 2019. These divide Celaya´s urban sprawl into four quadrants and have a distance of 7.5 Km (east-west) and 8.6 Km (north-south). The east-west railway (est. 1878) has an urban structure involving all economic strata, housing, historical sites and industrial archeology. The north-south railway (est.1883) includes housing and industries such as Honda Motors Company opened in 2014.

The intervention of historical railways, industrial archeology, monuments and construction lands will provide a real identity to the city, giving an aesthetic line to follow. The most important policy to comply to is “The Law of Public Projects”, which states that spaces undergoing construction must be executed through public contests.

Celaya has an atypical opportunity: the abandonment of 16.1km of immersed railways in the city´s sprawl. The current construction of new railways will improve the overall railway system in the region and allow the execution of this project. New urban uses for historical embedded railways reduce the cost of improving public infrastructure bringing benefits to the people. At the same time, this will promote the recovery of historical landscapes in order to be adopted as part of a discipline in the guild.

Private developers guide the city into social destabilization and control the current models of housing, infrastructure and social security development. The project implements 131 out of 303 objectives from two official documents: “The Municipal Development Plan” and “The Land Use Plan”. Objectives are classified as follows: infrastructure, education, economy, ecology, sports, culture, housing, transportation, health, project concept, social protection and parks. This project is a public programmatic growth platform where any new proposal is accepted as long as it follows the basic guidelines for proper execution in the short, medium and long term.

CDAU The challenge of this project was to design a whole collection of products that could lead to an integral interior design solution using parota wood, walnut wood and steel as main materials. All products were manufactured by artisans from the region of the Bajio, even though the design was developed with parametric design bases. Designing furniture, lighting products, textiles, ceramics, so on, guided me to apply my formation as an architecture designer into industrial design scale. The understanding of anthropometry was the most important guidance to deliver correct results to my client. Furthermore, the line of interior design was clear and punctual, the main pieces of each area had to be the center of attention to provide a strong idea of how each product had a whole process of design and fabrication, showing the best qualities of the artisans in the region. The process of design started with handmade drawings that developed into isometric drawings and finally production plans for the manufacturers for more than 55 products to develop.

OF 03 The architectural program is conformed by offices, showroom and a warehouse for a ventilation company. The materials chosen for the project are concrete bricks, concrete, and steel.



The building have to be flexible in case of adding the warehouse to the program of the showroom in the future, for which we began to define which materials fulfilled that objective. The concrete block works as the main finish of the façade and is the dividing structure of the entire program, which can be manipulated in the future. The concrete walls operate as the main structural elements and are the points of connection with the steel elements. The steel structure demonstrates the axes and grid of the building. The materiality of the project with apparent and common materials in the immediate context, allowed to demonstrate the different design options in the construction in Celaya.

CCC 3 - 4

This project was the most challenging project from all. It was delivered to my company when the client decided to fire the architects and the construction management company due to the problems in the process of design and construction. The project has 8,000 m2 and we had to connect the public areas (3,742 m2) to the privet ones (4,258m2). The most important thing was to use the old structures from the original golf house (from 1960 and 1980) and integrate them into the new project. We had to organize a team of 28 companies in order to give structure and a correct use of economic resources. The challenge was to respect the facade aesthetic line of the original idea but re-designing all of the interiors to generate savings and a coherent strategy. The obsessive process of understanding structural problems on the architecture and interior design was the main key to achieve the success of the project.

This project was the first architectural collaboration between Talller (Luis Carbonell and Andres Souto from Mexico City) and 17 60 mx (Eduardo de la Lastra). San Miguel de Allende is a town with a strict norm of construction due to its World Heritage mention from the UNESCO. The client required a house that was not into the aesthetic line Mexican colonial architecture, so the solution was to bring modernist aesthetic lines and mix it with materials from the region. The use of wood, steel, river stones and plants from the region have a strong result into how the house blends with its context. The most important contextual object was the view to the lake, so the house was designed with the public program on the last floor, giving integration to the landscape.
