Winning Design Chosen for Juan Gabriel Plaza

In January 2018, Ciudad Juarez announced the winner of the Juan Gabriel Plaza Design Competition. The winning design was submitted by HADVD Arquitectos, an architecture firm based in Juarez and El Paso, and featured a range of greening elements including local flora, grass berms, and an events venue to encourage greater public use and culture. The final submission followed the community feedback session in December, where the top three designs teams recalibrated their designs based on participant input. The City of Juarez’s Resilience office will now work with the design team and relevant municipal agencies to create a phased implementation plan.
