In Pictures: Tec de Monterrey

One of the things that stood out in my mind while attending a conference at Tec. de Monterrey in Mexico City last week was the campus.  The university where I work has relatively little open space or emphasis on architecture, but Tec.’s campus really impressed me with the interesting building designs and the size and openness of the central courtyard.  Granted, sometimes the various architectural designs seemed to clash, like the squat building with the round dome, and the purple wall that morphed into the parking structure, but the details of the overall design struck me as being one of utility, openness, and giving rise to contemplation… and isn’t that what a campus is supposed to be?
