In 1971, Friendship Park was created at the western coast of the US-Mexico border, a small strip of land where the United States and Mexico were separated by just a single chain-link fence to offer friends and family in San Diego and Tijuana a place to meet and spend time together. The park was a small acknowledgement of the effect of border politics on human lives; all the same, border politics made a dramatic comeback in 2009, when the US created a second fence, severely limiting access to the park. Eight kilometers (5 miles) to the East, pedestrians wishing to cross the border are funneled alongside twenty lanes of traffic, over a bridge with high fences on either side.

These less-than-ideal conditions led Patrick Cordelle, a bachelor's student at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo to design "La Línea Borrosa" (The Blurred Line), a combined pedestrian border crossing and shared national recreation space for the Tijuana-San Diego coastline.

After several years spent broken and unusable, the local water source at Parque Urueta in the center of Chihuahua, Mexico, has been revitalized by the Instituto Superior de Arquitectura de Chihuahua’s (ISAD) Taller del Desierto student workshop. This year’s version of the annual workshop—called Urban SPA—has teamed up with PKMN architectures and Memela, as well as civil association Impulsados Capacidades and materials sponsor A+bien.

In an effort to create “a collective imaginary for the future,” the workshop began with initial ideas, like shaded areas for parents to drop off children for school, steps to link resting and sports areas, and bench maintenance actions. However, after neighbors voiced concerns about the park’s broken public water source, the workshop’s focus shifted towards the Urban SPA concept.

FR-EE Proposes to Restore Mexico City Avenue with Cultural Corridor Chapultepec

Avenida Chapultepec is one of the most important and historic avenues in Mexico City. Once a calm Pre-Hispanic road that ran along the city's aqueduct, Avenida Chapultepec is now high-speed avenue, "negligent to its context and historic richness." Thus, FR-EE / Fernando Romero EnterprisE, FRENTE arquitectura and RVDG arquitectura + urbanismo have joined forces to propose a pedestrian-centric masterplan that aims to transform the congested avenue into an efficient, multimodal roadway that features an elevated promenade lined with commercial and cultural programs that are powered by renewable energy and connected by lush landscaping. Read on to learn more about the proposed Chapultepec Cultural Corridor (CCC).

"This is the most important creation of a new public space from the Central Alameda, it will be an area unprecedented in the city and space of more urban diversity in Mexico City." - Fernando Romero, general FR-EE Fernando Romero Enterprise

Street Artists and Local Government Team Up to Create Colorful Mexican Mural

08:00 - 29 July, 2015

About an hour outside Mexico City lies the small town of Palmitas in the Pachuca district, an area that, a few months ago, began a massive street art project to unite the community. Beginning as an idea from local government leaders, the project was executed by self-taught street artists Germen Crew.

Using the existing architecture set on the town’s predominant hill, Germen Crew created a multi-perspective piece of art that takes one of Mexico’s most recognized art forms—the mural—and adds a new sense of perspective and community to the historic tradition.

Project for an Elevated Park in Chapultepec, Mexico

Project for an Elevated Park in Chapultepec, Mexico

Mexico City's exponential urban growth in the last decades has brought with it problems in terms of mobility, disorganized urban development and pollution. This has affected the connectivity of its roads and axes both physically and in terms of image. However, it has also provided important opportunities for urban and architectural interventions.

This project, developed by FRENTE arquitectura and RVDG arquitectura + urbanismo, recently received an IAA International Architecture Award in the Urban Planning category. It is a proposal for the regeneration of public space in order to create community in one of the areas with the most potential in the city.

Read on to learn more about the Chapultepec Elevated Park.
