Colonia Education Centre

The brief aims to provide social mobility to people living in the Colonias of the USA via an education centre. Colonias are semi-informal, slum like settlements which exist within the USA along the Mexico border, the living conditions are often poor and there is a lack of infrastructure. The building reflects the lifestyle and vernacular of Colonias.

  • Extracting architectural elements and materials of Colonias helped begin the process of design.
  • Compiling the extracted vernacular elements on site according to prior analysis enables the form and massing to take shape.
  • The finished building uses a variety of different structures.
