Alberto Kalach is an architect working in Mexico City.
His concern about the emerging problems of the vast city is reflected very often in his work: from the $5,000.00 USD minimal house, to his housing developments or to the largest project ever conceived for the Valley of Mexico Basin called México Ciudad Futura (Return to the city of Lakes), that embraces the city as a whole, studied through its Geography.

A lab, a greenhouse, and learning team, we at T.A.X. have created a space to question, explore, and redefine...space, that is devoted to transcend the unavoidable geographic, economic and temporal constraints engrained in every project and turn them into an opportunity to build, together, a solution that not only respects and celebrates the environment but also serves its cultural context by getting it to see itself-constructed.
A.K. + T.A.X.
Thinker, builder, preserver, Alberto Kalach and his youthful lab- T.A.X.-have forged their place in contemporary architecture by creating spaces the celebrate the creative process itself. With a practical yet playful dialogue between growth and simplicity, texture and light, all grays spring green and structures flow organic-by fractally turning the garden into the heart of their dancing geometry, while letting light breathe in, with weaving wild materials-soothing in the most tactile ways...be it for life, work, or simply art´s sake...this workshop is learning team, set for discovery, where only what gets loved-gets built.
