It is a rehabilitation project for the public space for the San Pablo Xalpa Housing Unit in Azcapotzalco. The unit was divided by walls, fences and barriers that the inhabitants had built themselves over time and that did not allow a free use of the public space available. The main objective was to transform a "sectored housing unit" into a "Common-Unity", designing with the community and not only for the community based on the implementation of different actions. The strategy of the project was to work with the barriers created by the inhabitants: permeate them, democratise them and re-signify them to generate UNITY in the neighbourhood Previously, the inhabitants of different sectors of the neighbourhood recurrently implemented temporary structures in the public area for events and meetings, thus extending their private area; working with them, we rescued the idea so that there would be areas of recreation and coexistence.
