Design and construction of a new 20,700 square foot, 540 seat theatre for the Universidad de Celaya, in central Mexico. The design responded to the local cultural and regional influences by the use of color, light, materials, and forms and methods of construction. Local artisans were involved to design, fabricate and install building detail elements, such as tiled bovidas, light screens, ceramic light fixtures, decorative tile, fountain and sculptures and proscenium decorative relief.

“The buildings he has designed are beautiful…He has taken advantage of our climate and environment.”
