Located in Mexico City, Mexico, R432, Reforma, in is a shining example of the region’s architectural experimentation was designed by Rojkind Arquitectos. Within the rippling form will be 28 floors of residential units, 12 levels of offices with associated parking, 3 floors offering luxury restaurants and retail facilities, with 5 basement levels reserved for residential parking. Located on the top 10 floors will be entertainment and leisure facilities to cater to the needs of R432’s residents, including a gym, swimming pool, spa area, and jogging track.
As Mexico City continues its creative development, architects and designers appear to be taking inspiration from more and more unlikely sources. In this case, Rojkind Arquitectos have been stimulated by the writings of French philosopher Gaston Bachelard, whose critical piece ‘Water and Dreams: An Essay on the Imagination of Matter’ explores the comparative constituents of a number of natural materials, on both physical and figurative levels.
