The house-tree by Tatiana Bilbao

The house-tree

Mexican architectural company Tatiana Bilbao has created the design project of a university building. The author has inspired on project creation — an ordinary tree.

Biological Penates

The building has received the name “Biotechnological Park Building”. The six-storied structure will shelter researchers and experimenters in the field of the new technologies applied in agriculture.

The project will take places on 8,000 sq.m. of a campus of the largest private university in Mexico (Tecnológico de Monterrey) in the city of Culiacan.

The university concept

The concept represents a complex of the blocks placed in chessboard order. On-opinion architects, such structure is similar to a live, growing tree.

The university education will be taught on the building ground floors — in "roots", and research and business programs — on top, in "crones".
