A School for Bauhaus

Inspired in the heritage of Bauhaus to the world, the legacy and the growth of the arts and crafts, the proyect stands in the belief of givin’ to the legacy of Bauhaus, something back, a little piece of Mexico imbedded on the space and walls, but integrating past, present and future, leaving a new Architecture that grows in emotion, and grows in function

Our Architecture comes from the primordial idea of stereotomical, and going back to the way nature makes shelters, by carving into the earth so we take the buildings as pieces, which get multiple substractions that become habitable spaces, and going to the idea of Heidegger of what a habitable space is, and how human life and activities develop from it.

So, we take the design as a process of taking off, rather than adding, more like sculpting pieces of marble and rock, revealing layers of different colors, textures and even materials.

The exhibition space comes in the same idea of substracting rather than adding, so on the exterior it shows that identity of an architecture that is one piece, but at the same time it shows to be an envelope not only of other materials and textures, but from events and activities, so we decide to play with the light, making it part of the emotional essence of the space, making that every exhibition and activity done in it, becomes a magical process.

We look upon the necessity of creativity, and enhancing all of it because of the space interactions, and the different atmospheres created on said spaces.

Taking a look and learning from the Mexican Architect Luis Barragán, we give back to Bauhaus a gift from Mexico, an Architecture pure, emotional, that integrates function and soul, and contains experiences and dreams.

At last, we give to the building a finish on chukum, an old resin from Mexico wich has a reddish tonality and gives new sensations to the design, and protects it from humidity, heath, and the look gets completed by it.
