Residential Architecture: Casa Ajijic by Tatiana Bilbao: “..a summer house..the concrete cubes are staggered, creating layers and pockets which provide the residents with both public and private spaces..the dwelling is constructed from vernacular materials using traditional mexican methods, resulting in a structure which strongly responds to its surrounding landscape..the various translucencies of the overall building create a visual interplay between the materials, while keeping in mind the glass openings. these are strategically found on the south side, protecting the north from the cold winds..”  Interesting use of vernacular materials and techniques..
