Manacar Tower

Mexico City, Mexico 

The mixed purpose – residential and retail – building is the last project created by the late architect, Teodoro González de León, who was always very aware of the relationship between light and architecture.

The need to define the building’s artificial lighting was an important requirement right from the start of the project given the tower’s massive presence in natural daylight.

Its geometrical structure is extremely distinctive and therefore both the architect and lighting designer spent a long time deciding how they wanted the tower to appear at night and how it should fit into a cityscape that is obviously very different to the way it looks during the day.
