Best Project of Building or Facility by Student

About the project
Expressed in a timeline about the evolution and growth of architecture within Mérida city, which, in the first instance, grew according to a damero grid. Subsequently, the arrival of the car was a demographic growth. Due to the increase in the population, the city begins to expand by breaking that grid, contrast that defines the city and which in turn configures the project. Consequently, the building call «modern building», represents the orthogonal rupture of urban distribution; while the «historic-traditional building» brings together the essential characteristics of the most representative architecture works within the historic center of the city
