Envisioned Water Ecology for Mexico City

Mexico City sits on a valley, home to a rich network of lakes, wetlands and rivers. This complex ecology is almost extinct due to a relentless urban development which threats the viability of Mexico City while denying its inhabitants access to an inherently per-formative landscape. The project proposes the recovery of the ravines, the last and primal bastions of the water ecosystem which nowadays co-exist with the city. Through a multi-scalar approach, it fosters local and punctual interventions with metropolitan implications. It ensures the re-integration of ravines into the urban fabric through the engagement and interlocking of responsibilities from various agencies, communities and neighbours.

Urban Park of Palouriotissa Third Prize

The concept of the park is based on the existing and traditional terraces of Cyprus and, more specifically, Latsia.

These terraces not only allow for the management of the slope and water but link the project’s programme, as an environmental centre, to its spatial design. By consolidating the existing terraces, which define the park’s configuration, the terraces generate an intrinsic spatial relation between the park activities, the landscape and the views. Moreover, the terraces have been designed so a minimum amount of earth will be moved and so people with reduced mobility will have easy accessibility.
