Mediapark Ciudad Juárez

Floor Area:4,050 m2
Location:Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua
Competition:2011
Client:Arquine
Design:R. Combaluzier, E. Duarte, W. Ramírez, J. Rivas
Our proposal is a "no building", that remembers sensibilities forgotten, when the greatest resource was the talent and the most important potential was the mutual support.
We take shelter underneath the floor taking advantage of the thermal insulation, rescue the kiva and the reencounter in a public space sheltered from the weather and violence in a restrained and conciliatory insertion, inside the preexisting tissue; which is linked to the absolute - the sun, the land, the landscape - and to the relative - the city, the significant buildings, the streets - taking advantage of the eternal rock and carving in it spaces for today's needs, that understands and uses the new fire emanating from flat panel displays and LEDs and projecting this fire over people and city, in a solid beacon, that speaks about a new hope born of past memories as a tool to build a better future.
