🇲🇽 Temple of The moon 🌙, Mexico.
The Pyramid of the Moon is the second largest pyramid in modern-day San Juan #Teotihuacan, Mexico, after the #Pyramid of the Sun. It is located in the #western part of the ancient city of Teotihuacan and mimics the contours of the mountain #cerrogordo, just north of the site. Some have called it #Tenan, which in Nahuatl, means "mother or protective stone." The Pyramid of the Moon covers a structure older than the Pyramid of the Sun. The structure existed prior to 200 AD.

The Pyramid's construction between 200 and 250 AD completed the bilateral symmetry of the temple complex. A slope in front of the staircase gives access to the Avenue of the Dead, a platform atop the pyramid was used to conduct ceremonies in honor of the Great Goddess of Teotihuacan, the goddess of water, fertility, the earth, and even creation itself. This platform and the sculpture found at the pyramid's bottom are thus dedicated to The Great Goddess.

Very engaging installation created by Frida Escobedo next to the Serpentine Pavilion. She have used the roof tiles to build a “celosia”-a breeze block wall that allows light and breeze to filter through, representing Mexican courtyard architectural style. Next to the wall is a shallow pool where kids are jumping and also a mirrored ceiling that creates a series of disorted reflections. #fridaescobedo #serpentinepavilion #mexicanartist #mexicanarchitecture #reflection #encounter #sitespecific #serpentinegallery #kensingtongardens

Franz Mayer Museum Courtyard former San Juan de Dios monastery and hospital.

I've always been pasionate about Colonial Architecture due to its simplicity, composition and proportions. The courtyard is a typical element of Mexican Architecture. This patio creates a microclimate that contrasts with the noise and heat from the urban environment. Its simple form provides shading from the strong solar radiation.
The fountain and vegetation provide #evaporativecooling which reduce drastically the external high temperatures. Creating a fresh internal / external space for contemplation.
