PILARES Valentín Gómez Farías is a facility that is part of an initiative and public policy aimed at rebuilding from the ground up, using committed architecture, to create a community center that benefits the citizens from the neighborhood. Two latticework walls frame the building on the eastern and western ends of the site, creating within them a reticular space that is divided into a series of naturally illuminated and ventilated classrooms and educational spaces, thanks to a set of skylights oriented towards the north, with varying heights.
