Project designed within AYASTUDIO for the extension of the TEC SONORA Campus
The campus embodies several programs: a botanic garden, a grad school, a high school, an architecture and a design school.
AYASTUDIO "campus" team: Jorge Ayala (principal of [Ay]Astudio), Jonas Braoudé, Pierre Marquis, Ana Maria Feijao, Tristan Delagneau, Hugo Reichman, Khaled Ess.
Prototypical botanic gardens is the main public space of the campus. Basically, it aims to design functional circulations as well as relaxing spaces. The concept of the garden has been to physically manipulates the ground until it split into semi independents units. Each one defines the rules of its on components in order to generates 8 botanical atmospheres connectd to the overall landscape infrastructure. The project offers a series of fonctional circulations such as roads , bike paths and several pedestrian features.
The manipulation of the ground is based on Landscape Urbanism technics of mapping, meshing, geometrical indexing as well as tradditional tectnics of "remblais-deblais" in order to design the principals of the ground with spaces to seat down, spaces to walk, spaces to plant specific vegetations...
