Torre de Especialidaes,
Hospital Manuel Gea Gonzales

The 2500m2 facade at Torre de Especialidades is a 100m long, curved screen along Avenida San Fernando, a busy arterial in Tlalpan, in the southern quarter of Mexico City.* Funded by the Ministry of Health, the project is part of a 3-year, $20 billion investment into health infrastructure in Mexico. Prosolve was chosen by the hospital in part for its anti-microbial, de-polluting effect, as well as providing visual complexity, memorable in form, as a counter to the city's air pollution problem.
