The architecture and interior design play an important role for the adequacy of the spaces that are attractive to the eye, causing pleasure and comfort for their aesthetics residents of large contemporary cities, where infrastructure is predominantly for economic development and tourism.
Mexican designer Jorge Torres, with more than 30 years of experience is a demonstration of design since the era of internet. His work becomes more critical when adapting spaces, forcing greater innovation taking into account the monetary accessibility: “it is important how through services offered by public spaces, people take to the streets, an environment is created around a couple of blocks as a small colony, have close coffee, yoga, library, or a playroom for children. ”
The professor also was in Guadalajara to visit a couple of works that has the architect Beatriz Jimenez, in addition to analyzing various invitation works. Her signature which basically works in collaboration with architects’ offices has worked in interior design and real estate design: “Basically, what we do is integrate architecture to give added value to the user.” Now that analyzes residential projects, realizes that there is an interesting process of contemporary changes: “The city begins to diversify again in housing apartment buildings, because if not it would continue to grow outside and becomes too very complex. This part of resume spaces that somehow generate areas were abandoned; Colonia visited the Americas and there is a phenomenon of restaurants, people want to go out, go to yoga. ”
Torres highlights that in order to bring services to citizens is to think about connectivity and micro businesses that can take shape, so that they do not have to find out what they can get in their own space: “It seize the infrastructure that Guadalajara has, because the scale has yet to walk it. ” His most famous designs are in the boutique hotel; LA FE Hotel and Arts.
From his perspective, Mexico is a country that has had sustained growth because despite the various crises that have lived abroad, the demand of the most important cities remains.
Torres details that opportunities exist for young people who want to do the design profession in its different branches, such as interior, industrial and graphic, because everything is in being entrepreneurs, so that at the end of their university studies believe their own company and become managers of it: “in universities there is a huge talent, today turn out better, before it was more difficult, people did not understand what was the design, and we have evolved.”

A constant evolution
Jorge Torres, who has carried out projects in Mexico and the United States shares that the main task of his office is the process of designing from the inside out and, therefore, it is important communication with the architect, who is in charge of the exterior, the “shell”; so, the union of these key areas makes the work given to the customer is of better quality and effectiveness, because as he says, the public is now more critical and demanding.
“People generally have more information now and this is given by the global communication in the world. Today we have access to the internet without having visited a country or have the access to all this information a hotel. People are aware that we live better and that has created that designers and architects pay more attention to detail and who hire interior design firms like us. As it grows the volume of demand can have better prices, the integration of interior design to architecture comes to demand it. ”
It notes that 30 years ago this phenomenon came through the times themselves and communication tools were developed, so that people could not find design functionality, but today its so important because there lies a zone to be successful, and that just one click to recognize if there is a cinema, cafe, restaurants, dry cleaners, if the roads are well maintained and other key points that make a couple, a family or an individual chooses to live in that environment: “the design the world sells, people dress design, car, glass and obviously this makes people decide. ”
