TO has built Kithara Music Public Kiosk in Mexico City, Mexico.
Kithara Music Public Kiosk is a community space located in Yuguelito, a marginalised area of Mexico City, built atop the rubble left behind by the devastating earthquakes.
Consisting of a rain-harvesting masonry vault – split into two levels by a wooden platform – the vault rotates towards the majestic Xaltepec Volcano, creating a lush garden around and an open space facing the street.
Using an array of recycled materials, including stone, concrete, brick, and wood, as well as generous donations from the community, the building has been transformed into a hub for guitar lessons, theatrical performances, and community gatherings.
