The Mexican American Cultural Center

The design team made up of CasaBella Architects and its joint venture partner, Del Campo & Maru, in association with Mexican architect Teodora Gonzalez de Leon, provided master planning services for the first phase of the Mexican American Cultural Center project.

Multiple public workshops were held to obtain input as to the ultimate use and size of the facility. The design centered around the creation of a two-acre zocalo, opening up toward Town Lake and its jogging trail, with a two-story crescent shaped building with offices, classrooms and exhibit spaces. Within the zocalo are three "shading" structures creating partial shade for the summer months.
