    El Croquis 193. Manuel Cervantes 2011-2018 is a monograph that explores the work of Mexican architect Manuel Cervantes. The issue spans the years 2011 to 2018 and features a diverse range of projects that showcase Cervantes’s signature blend of sensitivity to context, sustainable design, and human scale.

    Sensitivity to Context

    Cervantes’s architecture is deeply rooted in its context, whether it be a bustling city street or a tranquil rural landscape. He seeks to create a harmonious dialogue between his architecture and its surroundings, often drawing inspiration from the local vernacular and materials. For example, his House in Iztacalco in Mexico City is a celebration of the local vernacular, with its red brick walls and terracotta roof tiles. The house is also designed to be energy-efficient, with passive solar design and natural ventilation.

    Sustainable Design

    Cervantes is committed to sustainable design, using materials and construction methods that are environmentally responsible. He is also a strong advocate for social and economic sustainability, seeking to create architecture that benefits the community and the environment. For example, his School in Chiapas in Mexico is a sustainable and affordable educational facility. The school is built with locally sourced materials and features passive solar design and natural ventilation.

    Human Scale

    Cervantes’s architecture is human-centric, creating spaces that are inviting and comfortable. He pays close attention to the needs of the users, ensuring that his buildings are functional, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing. For example, his Library in Monterrey in Mexico is a vibrant and welcoming space for learning. The library is designed to be accessible and inclusive, with a variety of spaces for different types of users.


    El Croquis 193 is a testament to the poetic and evocative architecture of Manuel Cervantes. By juxtaposing stunning visuals, insightful commentary, and detailed drawings, the issue offers a comprehensive understanding of his design philosophy and its impact on contemporary architectural discourse.
