Galileo Terrace, Polanco, Mexico City

With the intention of creating a space which represents a escape from Mexico City, a reinterpretation of pre-hispanic Mexico was created, this scenario includes some elements such as sacbé (roads), palm covers, items made of clay (such as flowerpots), chairs made of natural materials, and the most important element: the maize field.

Those elements combined result in a terrace filled with natural elements, where the vegetation is completely endemic to our country.
