Did you know that there was a great lake under us? A Lake City endures between us
The Lacustrine Pavilion was born from the idea of generating a space for continuous reflection on our lacustrine past - that historical memory of the city, some of whose fragments we can still observe, feel, touch and experience. Analogous to a microscope, the pavilion is an artifact that will allow us to observe the lake horizon buried by the city.
For its construction, the challenge was to generate a structure that would not interfere with the fountain and that ensured the preservation of the square.
Special emphasis was placed on building with high quality, sustainable, low-maintenance materials. The structure is created from national pine wood from certified sustainable forests and its textile covering is made of cotton cloth.
The structural joints have been designed to be completely demountable by mechanical means, with the idea that they can be assembled with ease and not suffer damage in their disassembly for later transfer to other venues.
The garden, memory of the old chinampas raised by the city of Tenochtitlan.
designed in collaboration with Almudena, includes a delicate selection of fruits, shrubs, pastures and, of course, flowers emanating from the lake environment. To achieve this, a cultivation system has been designed in which a jute textile pot is proposed.
