Description
• Architect: Gregorio Vasquez and Manuel Wedeles.
___________________________________________________________

• W A R N I N G: It is only an exercise of creativity promoted by Arquine magazine in 2008, is not expected to be a real project.
___________________________________________________________

• Celebrate 200 years of Mexican independence. Extends geometrically from a square at its base, and is shaped by four extruding squares twisted on their vertical axis, to a rectangular tower at the top, the axis of which marks the direction of the sun. These twisting volumes generate vertical voids that are used as air ducts where air can be filtered and cleaned, and recycled back into the atmosphere.
