Aristos Building

Between Insurgentes and Aguascalientes streets, in the Condesa area in CDMX, one of the most beautiful and at the same time functional works of the City is found: the Conjunto Aristos. Built between 1959 and 1961, for its modernity, for many it could have been built a couple of years ago.

The Conjunto Aristos is perhaps one of the most representative works of José Luis Benlliure, was inspired by Mendelsohn, Borromini, Gaudí and the interior garden, in Brazilian architecture.

Its construction is based on three main constructions: an 18-level tower with Insurgentes facade, a nine-level horizontal body that overlooks the Aguascalientes st. and a four-level building.

Recently restored, the ensemble was designed by the Spanish architect, keeping his peninsular heritage with him, but at the same time committed to the functionalist movement which was gaining strength in Mexico.
