“In 30 or 40 years we will be amazed to see how un-livable where the office spaces of today.”
– Jean Nouvel
In the last decades there has been a degeneration of the “Action Office”, a model generated in the 60‘s by Rob-ert Propst, resulting on a series of homogeneous, universal, anonymous and repetitive spaces, which form a deficient spatial response for today’s working space needs.

Santa Maria del Mar Basilica
sanzpont [arquitectura] are an architecture firm located in Mexico and Spain. This is their latest project, the 2nd place winner of the competition for Cancun City Basilica, Santa Maria del Mar.
“When designing a basilica one must offer an official religious public building for the liturgical celebration and the adoration of the lord, a sacred space that provides purity, protection and serenity which by tradition is achieved by a standard of identity, top esthetic beauty, symmetry and proportion.”

The project emerged with the idea of taking advantage of the views from the residence to the eucalyptus forest that is located adjacent to the plot. A section is extracted from the volume of the house to create a central patio where an existing Eucalyptus is preserved; and the detached volume generates a body on the side to create the main entrance of the residence.
