Amon Collective

Concept design for a mixed-use building complex. The project proposal is developed by the Micropolis group for a private client in San José, Costa Rica. The project is located next to the river Torres and the entrance to the botanical garden in the North of San José's historical central districts. Being situated at the threshold of the urban green and the grey fabric, the building aims at repopulating this currently abandoned area of the city. The building program proposes private, public and collective areas in order to support a diversity of uses.

Similar types of urban acupunctures in different scales have been proposed to improve the central urban quality in Costa Rica's Greater Metropolitan Area, such as C.C.M.E.C., El Pochote, Intermanzan, P.N.S.G.A.M., and Trama Verde.
