Mexibús Nezahualcoyotl - Chimalhuacan

a|911 developed the Executive Master Plan for Transportation, including the improvement of public spaces and the architectural design of the stations. Transportation is one of the most relevant issues in the Nezahualcóyotl area, partly due to the high population concentration, mobility needs, and largely due to the deficiency in road infrastructure and mass public transportation. The Neza-Chimalhuacán Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) will impact approximately 2 million people, providing a more efficient, fast, and comfortable transportation system. At the request of the Transconsult consultancy, a|911 is designing the stations, cycle paths, and public spaces to serve one of the poorest areas of the city. Moritz Bernoully Moritz... More

ZNA Cadix Hospital

Situated at the head of Spoor Noord, the hospital is a hinge between the park, the docks and the city, and thus benefits from each of their qualities. The limited surface area of the site requires the hospital to be organised vertically. The hospital structure has a clearly discernible layered construction. All outpatient activities with consultation rooms, centres of knowledge and medical technical services are in the lowest section. The various nursing units are located in an L-shape at the top of the pedestal, above which is the administrative block. This entirety is bisected horizontally several times by interweaving the building with its surroundings. The hospital anchors itself in the urban fabric by releasing the entire ground floor... More
