New Plaza Expiatorio Temple

Conceptual design. Partnership with Arq. Horacio Guerrero.

Location: Calle Madero Esq. Juan Valle. León

Year: 2000

The conceptual Project is the result of the urban historical analysis where the two mail temples of the city (Cathedral and Expiatorio Temple) lack of an “atrium” which dignifies and highlight the perspective of both temples. This perspective was one of the first conceptual explorations where the west constructions are demolished and a new garden plaza is created. The possibility of an underground parking was also designed. Finally the plaza was constructed with a different design but a new public place was created for the city. The first stage of the Cathedral Plaza is also in process.
