RELI(E)VING THE CITY

'Big Urban Crunch' competition entry awarded with Honorable Mention.

The aim of the project is to rehabilitate the residential neighborhood of Nezahualcoyolt, in Mexico City, by increasing the amount of homes and by relocating the ones that are in poor conditions. All of this is achieved thanks to the use of an artifact-home, a structure that would lie on top of preexistent houses and that would be able to adapt to the different shapes of the rooftops. Thus, by relocating some houses on top of other, we would be left with empty lots that would be used as public space for the city.
