Founded by Jorge Arvizu, Ignacio del Río, Emmanuel Ramírez, and Diego Ricalde, Estudio MMX in Mexico City designed this square in Jojutla, a municipality in the state of Morelos, in an open project that citizens took part in. Inspiration was provided by trees that withstood the strong quakes suffered by the area in September 2017. The arch structures, a reinterpretation of traditional architecture in the region, harbor civic and communication programs. Executed with ocher-toned handcrafted bricks, grayish basalt stones, and a palette of native plants, the complex has shaded and covered spaces, places for encounters and circulation, besides a plaza where a range of events can be held in the open air.
