02 ACADEMIC PROJECTS
Location: San Pedro, Nuevo León, México Foldable project based in the Hoberman sphere, which resembles of a geodesic dome for the join mechanisms between the pieces; although it really is a polyhedra of multiple edges. In collaboration with the animal rescue association, PRODAN, and according to their needs, HoberBOX was developed, similar to a hemisphere that aims to work as a shelter for the smallest animals of the association. However, due to its resistance and easy deployment system, the structure is highly adaptable to all types of uses, from a tent to a pavilion, according to its scale.
SPIDERBOX Location: Monterrey, Nuevo Leรณn, Mexico Experimental exercise developed directly in the model of a box with hollow faces and bars that work like edges, it contains multiple hooks that tights the inner meshes and at the same time allows them to be accommodated in different ways, according to the needs and the use of the structure, achieving different results every time they are modified. It does not have a specific or particular use, however, it is highly adaptable according to its scale and material.
HOMELESS SHELTER Location: Monterrey, Nuevo Leรณn, Mexico Statistics from websites speak of 200 homeless people wandering bridges, ridges and avenues of Monterrey. The Mental Health for Homeless People Group AC, establishes that the nearest figure is 1000 indigent in the metropolitan area of the city, 90% men and 10% women. Therefore, the project emerges as a low-cost, accessible and easy-to-maintain urban alternative, located right next to the Felix U. Gomez subway station, a place where some street people are housed and reunited. .
CUBIK K Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands The intention of the Cubik K Kindergarten project is to emphasize the versatility that a space with public, semi-public and private qualities can have, so it can adapt to diverse functions, without mentioning the positive communication it has with the outside world. The aesthetics and the concept are based on the basic geometric shapes and the primary colors (which are part of the buildings), so children can relate and understand the space in a simpler way. Actions such as sharing, playing or differentiating colors are what they need to develop in this stage of childhood, so each module devotes its use to each learning process.

3.1 MASTER PLAN #CORE
HEALTH DISTRICT MASTER PLAN #CORE Location: Monterrey, Nuevo LeĂłn, Mexico Monterrey has faced various phenomena and processes that have influenced the behavior of the city, so the need for ordering is imminent to achieve an orderly and functional development with the purpose of improving the quality of life of the inhabitants. Given this situation, the district model is present with the intention of reforming strategic areas of the metropolitan area to facilitate communication between them and counteract the dispersed growth. With Tec District and IMPLANc de Monterrey leading, the Health District project was born, a polygon composed of 251 hectares of territory. After an extensive period of immersion between urban theories and identification of fundamental aspects that create the San JosĂŠ district. Conclusions were reached at the diagnostic level, as well as strategic proposals to promote the development and use of the district through architectural design and of their respective public spaces. It is intended to form a district that serves as a key piece in the improvement of the city of Monterrey and its metropolitan area, counteracting the phenomena of impermeability, dispersion and social and natural disintegration. This is how the project is approached from the human and natural needs to preserve the public character.
ÁREA = 2,586,985.31 m2 = 251 HA
ARCHITECTONIC STRATEGIES The absolute lack of dignified public spaces in the area, added to the imminent dissociation of the northern from â€‹the south area, added to the difficulty for the pedestrian to move freely, were the main problems to be solved. To achieve a real reform in the dynamics of the district, the first solution was the creation of four linear parks, two transversal and two longitudinal, that allow the uninterrupted connection between the Obispado hill and the Loma Larga hill. Without intending to hinder the metropolitan activity and considering that Morones Prieto and ConstituciĂłn Avenues are the most important road axes of the metropolis, we proposed an overpass that allows in the upper part the creation of the two transverse linear parks, thus achieving the objective of grant the inhabitants and visitors of the area, a pleasant place, with various activities and easily passable. On the other hand, the unification of the north and south area of the district through the construction of bridges is necessary considering that the pedestrian walking time is more than 40 minutes in risk conditions, coupled with the extreme climate of the city. These bridges, have an exclusive lane of public transport, two exclusive bicycle lanes, a wide sidewalk dedicated to the pedestrian and the continuation of the longitudinal linear parks.
Walking radios of 500 meters are conserved and in strategic points are placed vertical parkings that supply all the users, in addition, they are strategically located near the busiest hospitals and clinics (MAP 1.1).
Specific points are established where the public transport route with exclusive lane will circulate for greater efficiency (MAP 1.2).
A safe and efficient bike path is added to the circuit as a transport alternative. (MAP 1.3)
Complete streets are an important part of the goal of providing a safe pedestrian way of travel as a top priority. (MAP 1.4)

LAND USE The current presence of hospitals, clinics, schools and various facilities make the area a demanded place in morning hours, however, at the end of the day, public and private spaces are without activity, making it an unsafe place. As part of the reordering reform and with the intention of promoting the densification of the area, the use of land is distributed in such a way that mixed uses and vertical developments allow the growth of housing demand and services that satisfy the basic needs of the inhabitants, thus achieving constant activity and offering housing options for workers in the area who must move from one point to another of the metropolitan area. Likewise, mixed uses are part of the rehabilitation strategy of historically valuable homes that are currently abandoned in the northern part of the district, giving them a new life, without overthrow them.
Mix Use Health Buildings Facilities Commerce / Offices Residential Vertical Car Park
NEW BUILDINGS AND DENSITY It is intended to reach a new density of 100 inhabitants / ha compared to the current density of 8 inhabitants / ha, so the occupation of the currently underutilized properties is proposed, since they do not allow the desired growth in the area. It is sought not only to occupy the vacant lots with regulated vertical developments, but the total elimination of parking plates, transferring the service to 4 vertical parking spaces strategically located to serve the entire district (MAP 1.1).

INCLUSIVE HOUSING Location: Monterrey, Nuevo Leรณn, Mexico Although the model of districts in Monterrey generates surplus value, densifies and connects, we face a possible phenomenon of gentrification, therefore, the dispersed growth of the city. The users that make use of the zone have to live in the periphery of the metropolis, due to the high costs of the properties near the place where they work. For that reason, the model of inclusive housing, aims to provide the opportunity for users employed within the Health District to live close to their activities, with the aim of improving their quality of life, avoiding long transfers, also achieving better performance in their work, which benefits the companies established in the area.

The cost of construction and the market is maintained, so the solution must be addressed by the design of the building in conjunction with the solution to the public space.

3.2 URBAN ART
SCHOOL MURAL PAINTINGS Location: Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico An intervention was made at the Ignacio Martínez Elementary School in the Colonia Burócratas Municipales, which is part of the most insecure polygon of the city. The activities were divided into groups in order to solution different areas of opportunity. Among them, the realization of two murals in the playground, which were designed and painted in two days.
MADONNARI Location: Monterrey, Nuevo Leรณn, Mexico & Durango, Durango, Mexico Artistic expression that involves the reproduction of an image on the pavement, for this, chalks or pastel grays are used. The intention is the creation of an ephemeral work that usually exceeds 2.2 m2 of surface. Mexico has become an important exponent of this technique that promotes urban art.
