ABOUT ME I have always had a great desire to learn new things and improve myself professionally and as a person, I like setting new goals that challenge my knowledge and my abilities. I really like to design public spaces that provide ecosystem services to cities and serve as a meeting point between people and nature. It is for this reason that one of my greatest hobbies is the collection, germination, reproduction and planting of native species of the Mexican highlands, so far I have planted 300 trees and shrubs with this method. I would like to return to nature a little of what we have taken from it through landscape architecture.

La Alameda Year: 2014 Location: Aguascalientes, México. La Alameda is an important axel of Aguascalientes that connects the east with the city´s downtown. Is a place loaded with historical values and a stage of constant pedestrian and vehicular flow that has lacked of identity. The project gives new spatial and programmable qualities to make a new emblematic public space of the city. In 1899 the Arellano roadway was created, the latter and would be named “La Alameda” evoking to the dozens of Aspen trees that embellish the axel alongside its 900 meters, which will be transformed into a cultural axel where the most representative city´s artists will be rendered tribute. Starting from the flow analysis and a series of strategies a free layout was conceived from the axels at 45 degree angle, generating nodes of different activities.

Canal Interceptor Year: 2014 Location: Aguascalientes, MĂŠxico. Colaboration: Hugo Felix, Carlos Rodriguez, Homero Sandoval. Awards: 1st place in the category urbanism in the XXIV Edition Premios Obras CEMEX The project forms part of the rehabilitation master plan of a recreational axel that contemplates the development of a new cultural, sports facilities, recreational and service areas alongside Canal Interceptor Avenue. Is an important piece for the bicycle lanes network of Aguascalientes , connecting one existing lane that crosses the city from north to south by Manuel Gomez Morin Avenue. An important premise for the design was the respect of the existing natural elements that established the guide lines for the disposition of the distinct materiality that creates an apparent random system and generates emplacements of different uses. An amorphous concrete monolith deploys over the terrain to create a skate park and a screen is set to project movies at night.

Casa Xafix Year: 2014 Location: Aguascalientes, MĂŠxico. Awards: Honorable Mention in the XII National Biennial of Mexican Architecture 2014. 3rd place in the category family residence in the XIII Awards Obras CEMEX. The Xafix residence is located in an elevated nor-west zone of the City, where the program responds to the necessities of a family of 4 members; to the north of the lot the main building was erected, leaving a south-oriented yard area, leaving the most social spaces there. A volume effect that closes to the exterior which turns and moves from a vertical vertex that unites them. The spaces to the interior are stuctured trough a longitudinal vertebral column, a space of double height that in interrupted by a glass walk way which allows day light go through.

Workers Union Year: 2019 Location: Aguascalientes, MÊxico. The green areas of the union hall of workers’ events were thought as a zone of contemplation in which the view can rest from the events that take place in this complex, the idea is to generate zones of vegetation that transmit to the user tranquility and freshness. On the other hand, one of the main needs of the project was the low maintenance of the design, which was achieved through the use of native vegetation to the Mexican highlands

Nextel Park Year: 2017 Location: Guanajuato, MĂŠxico. The intention of the Nextel Park is to provide Paseo del Moral citizens with a site for social interaction, walking and leisure. Located at the intersection of one of the busiest streets of Leon, this park is currently abandoned for its insecurity situation, the proposal has several strategies to attract users again through sculptural elements, auditory and surprises in the travel and seasonal changes that generate curiosity in the citizens.

Railroad Complex Year: 2018 Location: Aguascalientes, MĂŠxico. The Ferrocarrilero Complex is part of the history of the consolidation of Aguascalientes as a city and that currently lasts, as Acosta points out (2017), has a great relevance and historical weight, which is not reflected in the design of the urban image, it is necessary to re interpret the city from history, to give it the value that the complex shows. In the Master Plan of the complex is to give it a new character that is more attractive to the contemporary user of the city, since currently the use of the complex has been leaning towards the service areas, leaving aside the old walks that made it . This is an area that has a high landscape, cultural, historical and sporting potential, by potentiating these elements the search by the promotional one is provided on current and relevant topics of the city, such as the native flora and fauna, as well as the systemic eco benefits that these bring to the city.
