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.
The lectured focused on the work of Groundlab and the principles behind the practice. Thanks to Jocelyn Magali and the ‘Seminario de Diseno e Innovacion’ organized by the ‘Universidad Autonoma Metropolina’ campus Azcapotzalco for the invitation. — in Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico.
