Creating a collaborative campus for Tecnológico de Monterrey with new settings for collaboration, allied industry partnership, and innovation


Instituto Tecnológico de Monterrey
Site Area: 62 acres New Building Area: 584,000 SF
Completed February 2017; Phase 1 begins October 2017

The Campus at Puebla is a rapidly growing campus within the Insti­tuto Tecnológico de Monterrey— Mexico’s largest private university system. From the outset, Sasaki’s design team worked with university leadership to develop a bold vision that integrated social, eco­nomic, 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 com­plements the existing lexicon of higher education spaces—with new settings for collaboration, allied industry partnership, and innova­tion.

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 stra­tegically 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 devel­opment 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 Univer­sity’s strategic goals, academic and research missions, with capital plan objectives to guide the physi­cal development of the campus.
