Isaac Broid – Productora: Teopanzolco Cultural Center
The Teopanzolco Cultural Center project is the product of a wider initiative to remodel and construct new cultural facilities in Cuernavaca, Mexico, with the aim of making the state of Morelos a national and international cultural destination. The brief posed a significant design challenge: to create a new auditorium complex adjacent to the Teopanzolco archeological site, a ceremonial structure built more than 800 years ago, in the built-up heart of a modern city. This book begins with the background to the Teopanzolco project, starting with the restricted competition won by architects Isaac Broid + Productora. Drawings, plans and photographs are included, and the final section of the book features images of the finished building, which now boasts five multipurpose forums and a spacious public patio and viewing platform connecting the archaeological site to the city.
