Mexico Prosolve Facade

16The project is an over-cladding facade for a hospital in Mexico composed from two injection-molded pieces: the X and the I. Utilizing innovative materials like ABS-P6, we achieve both strength and ductility to resist the high seismic forces common to the region. Additionally, the surface is treated with TiO2, a white powder pigment which sterilizes, deodorizes, and neutralizes fouling and polluting properties when added to paints. Also, as rain water runs down its surface, a magnetic reaction with the paint neutralizes toxic radicals.
