01 about

Designed in a joint venture with Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, the new United States Embassy Campus in Mexico City will be among the largest US embassy complexes in the world. The 1,000,000 sf multi-building complex is being constructed on an 8.5-acre site in the New Polano District of Mexico City, providing a secure, modern, and environmentally sustainable platform for US diplomacy.

The Embassy is sunken several stories into the ground, and designed around a large covered open air courtyard, responding to the scale of the neighborhood and climate of the region. Several additional smaller courtyards permeate the dense office block, providing sunlight, air, and natural scenery deep within embassy operations. The exterior façade is protected by a large, bronze brise-soleil that minimizes heat gain without diminishing views out of Mexico City.
