Mestizo by Borja Muguiro - AA Diploma 8
 
Mexico City, 2013
The project approaches Mexico City as a place shaped by its own architectural doubt. And in this sense, the project is about how the city has been able to materialize Mexico’s own contradictions.
They are a set of contradictions that I utilized to represent a Mexican architectural character.An architecture found somewhere between an Aztec regionalism and a universal effort for modernity.
Amidst this contradiction the campus takes its place as another question to the existing, as a dichotomy of its own; that of centrality opposing mestizaje. 

The campus, through its dichotomous character continues this project of mestizaje, no longer as a representation of the Mexican man but as a consolidation of the city’s architectural form.
