2023 GFD 🏆 Awards

Silver Winner – Lausana Residencial | AMG ARQUITECTOS and TARC

Cancun is one of the most popular destinations for tourism in Mexico, welcoming more than 9 million tourists a year, a number that increases 15% annually. Due to the economic and population growth, the city grew haphazardly around Cancun’s first Urban Project, which was created in 1969 and, since then, sustainable development has not been seen or achieved within Cancun.
