Rojkind Arquitectos:



Located over the side lane of the highway in the entrance to Toluca, in the edge of a 300 meter long insubstantial industrial installation that used to pass unnoticed, the new object appears with the spectacular nature of a window display. Half way between Mathias Goeritz s The Snake and Munch s Scream, this zigzagging origami rises from the garden level and becomes the entrance to a magical world, to the tour of the chocolate factory that rivals Tim Burton s imagination. The six hundred square meters of new construction standing over the garden, house a reception area, a theater that prepares young visitors for the trip to the world of chocolate; the entry to the existing tunnel that circles around the production areas in the inside of the factory and the chocolate and gadget store at the end of the tour.
