UNAM CULTURAL PAVILLION
The UNAM ecological reserve is nestled within the cultural area of University City and is the planned site of the Pavilion, which will function as a reception module and recreational artistic space. A cylindrical body of perforated white concrete, whose mass is affected by the view of it rising above the horizon of semi-desert vegetation, becomes a temporary refuge for the visitors to the sculpture garden. The lower level opens into an access plaza, a café, and an exhibition space.
The terraced upper level forms seating for an amphitheater that will host performing arts and outdoor exhibitions, while the raised perimeter wall to the south provides shade and ventilation for the different users.
