Cuerpa Tulum

Best Project of Public Building or Facility

About the project
Cuerpa is a new architectural typology, it is a clinic+a birth cave+a family co-living room. Is inspired by the Woman. In the access a sort of funnel evoking shape uterus, the organ that defines us as creators women and givers of life and at the same time the shape of the cotyledons of the placenta, the only temporary organ in humans. The roads of access and exit, represent the woman's legs and are red with blood; in the center a wet fountain with overlapping shapes, evokes conditions of the vagina. To the foot of the access, another source with the lotus flower reminds us of we creators, the symbolism of this plant: the sun, fertility and eternal human offspring. Interior the building, gardens with trees of life blooming from the uterus and placenta emerge such feeder umbilical cord of baby human life that we host and procure. The presence of curves and the overall exuberance of the project is merely inspired by the Feminine Being.
