Jardín San Hipólito位于墨西哥城城郊一片占地3公顷的林地之中，这个花园场地将可承办容纳一千个席位的各类活动。场地在十年中将会被逐步开发为住宅用地， EL UMBRAL也因此选择了轻质的可拆除建筑结构。建筑与环境的关系简单而直接，繁茂的树林和草地也被纳入了整体空间关系之中，为建筑带来活力与生气。
Jardín San Hipólito is a garden venue with capacity for a thousand people, located in a property of 3 hectares of wooded area on the outskirts of Mexico City. The site has housing potential, and will be developed within 10 years, which is why one of the most important premises of the competition was to design and build a removable and lightweight structure. With that peculiarity, the design still harnesses and utilizes the natural components of the wooden landscape, guaranteeing a direct connection with the surrounding environment.

建筑的主体部分由三个帐篷结构组成：中部面积高达1000平米 (40 x 25 米)的无柱主会场空间可承办各式各样的活动，内嵌了地暖加热系统的混凝土地板让室内空间四季如春；两侧的服务于主空间的卫生间和厨房则占地各250平米。在外部，服务区域、设备用地、居住空间、储物室和室外活动空间环绕而立。建筑师利用平整场地过程中清理出来的多余土方微微修改了地形，在场地的边缘形成微微高起的矮墙，防止盛行风大量涌入吹起帐篷结构，破坏其稳定性。这个仅使用塑料薄膜和数字化设计、制造的抗弯轻质钢铁结构搭建而成的建筑最高点达到了17米。
The project is composed by 3 tents: the main one, designed to serve as a main space for a diverse range of events, covers 1000 sqm (40 x 25 meters), which is free of columns and floored with a concrete slab equipped with a radiating heating system that creates a warm atmosphere; and two smaller adjacent tents of 250 m2 each, which lodge bathrooms and a kitchen, respectively. Service areas, facilities, accommodations, storage and landscaped areas are featured as well. To curb the prevailing winds and avoid a sail effect inside the main tent, natural slopes were erected to shape and frame the perimeter of the site by reusing and repurposing the materials resulting from the excavations and weeding of the land, anchoring the project to its context. The tents were assembled with a tensed plastic membrane and a digitally designed and manufactured lightweight steel structure with IPR beams with 80cm cambers that are pinned/screwed in intersecting 45 degrees. The main structure’s highest point and height at the intersection is 17 meters.
