CHAPULTEPEC 500

Michan Architecture as Architects

Michan Architecture has completed the design for a new office building located at Av. Chapultepec in Mexico City. The design of the project deals with the familiar and unfamiliar moments, as the tower is a perfect rectangular box, subtlety distorted at precise moments, it splits into four structural legs when the tower moves towards the ground, producing a public plaza and opening the building to its surrounding as well as generating a generous lobby with variable heights.

 

Two of the legs host circulation cores, one is the transfer core form the underground parking and the other hosts the core of the building; the other two legs have commercial activates inside. Those four elements are made of reinforced concrete and are part of the structure. The facade is a blue concrete regular grid window system, and as it moves down with the legs, it glitches and becomes a distorted grid, matching and disrupting the geometry of the legs. The structure of the tower is based on reinforced concrete, producing column free floor plans.
