While working at Muñoz & Company, I had the opportunity to work with some of the architects to develop design details for various projects. The following are a few examples:
The pattern for the University of Texas Health Science Center – South Texas Medical Academic Building, located in Edinburg, Texas, was created by combining an “ollin” (pronounced All-in), an Aztec symbol that represents intense and immediate movement, the caduceus which is often used in North America as a symbol for healthcare*, and the tree of life which alludes to the interconnection of all living things on earth. See Concept Work Here.
* In North America the caduceus is often confused with the rod of Asclepius, the actual symbol for medicine, which has only one snake and no wings.
PAUL ELIZONDO TOWER
I helped to develop a design concept for the entry ways of the Elizondo Tower, located in downtown San Antonio. The concept reflects design details in the stone work on the connected phase 1 building and implements them in a new medium of intricate iron work.
