From the Architects:

This is a neutral architectonic intervention that complements TOAs (Taller de Operaciones Ambientales) landscaping masterplan and Herzog & De Meurons Museo de Arte Moderno y Contemporaneo (Modern and Contemporary Art Museum) located in the Parque-Mirador Independencia of Guadalajara. The lookout-point and coffee-restaurant rivet the natural disemboguement of Av. Independencia but unobtrusively align to the sliding gesture of the landscape. Both facilities were achieved through a single architectonic manoeuver that consisted of an excavation and displacement of the look-out ground onto a jutting platform.
The main virtue of this direct and simple intervention is that both facilities are inconspicuous to sight and their interrelation subtly emulates the landscape gesture of the ravine.
