The Campus at Puebla is a rapidly growing campus within the Insti颅tuto Tecnol贸gico de Monterrey鈥 Mexico鈥檚 largest private university system. From the outset, Sasaki鈥檚 design team worked with university leadership to develop a bold vision that integrated social, eco颅nomic, and educational realities to create a collaborative campus that actively engages with its neighboring institutions and establishes strong connections to surrounding natural assets.

The plan accommodates significant increases in student enrollment and research demands, guides the creation of an active public realm, and com颅plements the existing lexicon of higher education spaces鈥攚ith new settings for collaboration, allied industry partnership, and innova颅tion.

The master plan disrupts existing silos to create a series of collaborative inter-disciplinary buildings that operate as shared resources as opposed to creating facilities solely dedicated to individual departments. Faculty is stra颅tegically located in distributed clusters to promote student faculty interaction. The lower levels of student and faculty housing are consciously programmed to house shared academic and social spaces that encourage community building and create strong ties back to academic teaching and learning.

The Puebla plan balances future devel颅opment with the sensitive transformation of significant recent infrastructure investments to create a pedestrian oriented public realm, establishes strong connections to adjacent institutions and national park, and integrates the Univer颅sity鈥檚 strategic goals, academic and research missions, with capital plan objectives to guide the physi颅cal development of the campus.
