    The specially designed Guadalajara office buildingJust read about this very interesting experiment in “sustainable office building design” in Guadalajara, Mexico. The office building was designed by Catalan architect Carme Pinos, in part with a view to providing a way to keep the occupants cool year-round in sunny Guadalajara without (energy-sucking) air conditioning.

      You do indeed have a cool blog. I only just discovered it. Welcome to The Temas Blog! I hope you come back often. BTW, if you come across and/or feature more sustainable building design examples from Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), please let me know at the email address here (link is at left on the horizontal nav bar) and I’ll be happy to mention it on my blog and send people your way.

      Best Regards,

      Ok it’s a cool building, granted. But did anybody else notice that it looks like a “Drake’s Devil Dog”standing on end?
