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.
The design was well received and was adopted into the branding for the School of Medicine.
* 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.
