When it comes to  bold geometry, openness, abstraction, and humanistic design of Mexico city UNAM campus contains it all. The Modernist buildings all around the campus contain hidden pathways, open courtyards, and pavilions. The plants that hug the other buildings also give a sense of unity. All of these elements combined is what modernist buildings lack as Yueqi “Jazzy” Li states, " The indigenous planting helps soften such rigorous volumes of spaces. As a result, the geometric abstraction of the architecture is perfectly married to the figures in nature, giving the campus a fresh sense of space and humanity."
