All over the world, cities and major universities are collaborating to create new economies and regenerate society. Tecnológico de Monterrey is positioned to become a leader in stimulating national urban and economic regeneration. The plan creates an environment in the university context that will attract significant research and development investment, while transforming the community into a lively, attractive, dynamic, and integrated district.
The Monterrey campus is designed to provide a modern, beautiful environment that supports collaborative and interdisciplinary learning and problem-solving, with academic, cultural, social, residential, and athletic facilities. The whole campus becomes a classroom, where the many forms of learning come together to create a unique and holistic experience.
With the objective of advancing the regeneration of the campus and adjoining neighborhoods, Sasaki is undertaking detailed architectural and landscape studies for key areas within the master plan:
• The existing library will be transformed into a bold and dynamic 21st-century learning environment. It will be a crossroads for the campus encouraging transparency, engagement and collaboration.
• At the heart of the new student and faculty commons district, the new TecXXI Exchange Pavilion will serve as a focal point and meeting place for assemblies, social events, and the exchange of ideas.
• The existing Borregos stadium will be redeveloped as a 15,000-spectator facility on a new site that will enhance integration with the adjoining neighborhood, and become Mexico’s premier collegiate football stadium.
• A state-of-the-art 11,000-square-meter recreation center will integrate a gymnasium and an Olympic-sized pool with expanded exercise and recreation facilities. Together with new playing fields it will define a green connection from the campus to the new stadium.
• With input from the community, the existing Parque Tecnológico is reimagined as a vital center of urban life in the Tecnológico neighborhood, and an engine of change and reinvestment in the nearby neighborhoods.
