New “Centro Cultural Imagina”

Imagina Children’s Foundation is proud to announce the beginning of the construction of the new “Imagina Centro Cultural” in León, Mexico.
The Groundbreaking ceremony will take place on March 10, 2014.
The project implements revolutionary ecological ideas from renowned brazilian architect Peter Van Lengen and famous architect and author german Gernot Minke. The building will be constructed using the labor of members of the community. The adobe bricks used in the building will be made at the site. We will use recycled materials, sustainable development methodologies, energy and water saving techniques. Bio-ecological elements like “green roofs”, water recycling and reforestation of local species are central part of the strategies used in the building. Coverage of the project can be found in the article published in the daily AM on January, 30th.
