Mariel Cuba

Project Type: Competition
Location: Mariel, Cuba
Year: Summer 2014

Cuba is opening itself to the US and therefore new job opportunities emerge. Here, two scenes depict what a high tech manufacturing/office space could look like. The design of these three buildings takes advantage of the coastal site and incorporates a passive cooling system. The 3 bar orientation allows for self shading from the western sun and also creates views towards the sea. The roof top is covered with hundreds of solar panels in order to take advantage of the solar power in the tropical climate. Natural wetland systems help minimize the destruction of the building foot print and also provides workers with a nice relaxing environment. These buildings offer a total of 1,000,000 sf of space for the intended use of office and assembly manufacturing.
