A festival performance stage that was later donated to a cultural center. Built entirely with local materials (bamboo and maguey rope) and volunteers' hands. 

The design is strongly inspired by Mayan culture and traditions, and the 13 energies which compose the symbolic Mayan 'week'.

These 13 energies take shape in the form of 13 composite bamboo branches, that wave up and down, giving the pavilion an airy, open and inviting feeling.
