rojkind arquitectos' foro boca concert hall to rise as concrete volumes in mexico

home to the boca del rio philharmonic orchestra, in the recent years, the city of veracruz in mexico has become a place for musical and cultural expression. the masterplan developed by rojkind arquitectos seeks to regenerate the deteriorating urban area and construct a concert hall situated right on the coast. the plot; rich with local history and with plenty of potential, is located by the estuary of a river. referencing the rip raps seen in the breakwater and reinterpreting this as a structural form, the expansive structure takes shape as rising concrete cubes.

  • First rendering is incredible, can feel the volumes, composition and materiality of the architecture… other than this, from the images present, including interiors… an unremarkable project.. :(….

    the location, and materials…
