structure has been conceived to reject the nefarious response one has to typical industrial 
buildings. they american firm has approached the architecture in a way that sees it preserving 
the integrity of the high bay industrial facility and program, while also considering the occupants’
 needs by providing a model environment for users and visitors.
The building is rapped in a perforated and etched metal skin situated on a 100,000 square foot
 site within the new
 research and technology innovation park (PIIT) in monterrey.
