rojkind arquitectos have designed the ‘nestle application group’ building in queretaro mexico. the building consists of a laboratory, a tasting area, an auditorium and offices. for their design they had to adhere to certain building constraints as the area was declared a UNESCO historic site in 1996. the new building had to have a portico with arches. rather than use sophisticated technology to create the specific parts of the complex geometry of the spheres, local workers built the semi spherical domes assembled with arches and rings of steel rods the building consists of a metallic, glossy exterior, with colorful interiors.

the building is defined by rounded cut-outs
