SWA wins design project in Mexico
SWA Group has won a design competition to provide master planning and landscape architecture improving sustainability for the 247-acre campus of the University of Monterrey, Monterrey, Mexico. The assignment includes a phase-one implementation of site design for the Art and Design School Building under construction by noted architect Tadao Ando, 1995 winner of the Pritzker Prize.
SWA’s assignment for the University of Monterrey, Mexico’s premier institution of higher education, will help transform the campus from a vehicular orientation to one that encourages pedestrian, bicycle and transit use. The master plan will also incorporate greater sustainability by use of indigenous plant materials, natural water-retention and filtration, low maintenance landscaping as well as site-design strategies to enhance the learning and collaboration among students and faculty.
