architect magazine : Regeneración: A Vision for the Campus and District of the Tecnológico de Monterrey





2017 AIA Institute Honor Award Winner in Regional & Urban Design

Since its founding in 1943, Mexico’s Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education has demonstrated an enterprising and ambitious spirit unusual in an academic institution. It was among the first in the country to seek accreditation from the United States Department of Education—thereby drawing students from north of the border—and its campus, designed in the late 1940s, was conceived as a showcase for the best in modernist architecture.

Enrique de la Mora, a key figure in Mexico’s own national brand of Modernism, created a gorgeous suite of buildings for the original campus, which he arranged for optimal exposure to light and air. In the intervening decades, however, subsequent additions have departed from de la Mora’s vision and added architectural clutter, while also cutting off the school grounds from the surrounding city.
