Our responsibility goes beyond offering just a living space. We give examples of certain elements like water and how it can be captured, treated and reused. Our building offers less consumption of energy through passive ventilation and naturally illuminated spaces. We created a habitat for migrating species, offered spaces for growing your own food. We are enhancing life quality and education on an urban context through our proposal just by a deep understanding of it's social and ecological history.
Since 1949 the city lost its rivers and those spaces have been replaced with highways. Four out of five mexico city citizens have to share one fifth of the street space. The Rio La Piedad piped under the highway Viaducto Miguel Alemán is the perfect example of social segregation because it can only be used by driving citizens. The Regenerated Rio La Piedad presents an opportunity to create public spaces that emphasize public mobility and improve the quality of life of the local community
