Ten brilliant projects from the international award-winning firm Diametro Arquitectos, led by David Cherem, distill the essence of contemporary Mexican modernism in this elegantly photographed volume. Combining typical Mexican materials like concrete, stone and wood with ultra- modern computer-aided design flourishes and lots of geometric Wow Factor, the firm’s works range from eye-popping private homes and condos to hotels to corporate mega-developments within the trendiest neighborhoods of Mexico City and beach resort towns. Of the ten projects featured here, six are apartment blocks that show Diametro’s ability to make its buildings fit in to their surroundings and yet explode with innovation and luxury within their walls.
