spring fever: los manantiales restuaurant, mexico city by Felix Candela


Built in 1958, Los Manantiales restaurant is situated in Xochimilco, in the South of Mexico City. The restaurant was given the name Manantiales (meaning springs), as there is a natural water source in the town, that used to supply Mexico City with it’s drinking water. The roof, constructed using a concrete membrane, is suggestive of a wave or ripples.
