Text description provided by the architects. The locality is the result of living and interacting with a group of people in the same territory, becoming the premises of that space. Our focus was set as an exercise for Mexico City, inspired by the millions of people who move from different places to other destinations, through the most inclusive and fastest-flowing means of transportation in the country, and where a group of people unknown lives for a few minutes every day.

Located in Plaza Manuel Tolsá, the project is an interactive process in a delimited space, consisting of twelve doors, each with a different color that allows the user to choose the access with which he identifies, these colors were determined by the twelve lines of the collective transport system metro. When users go through the door, they are greeted by an indifferent interior, where initially they observe themselves in an infinite way, strengthening the idea of ​​belonging and then everyone as a group, achieving a unique synergy and coexisting as equals without limits.

The interior space is filled with a group of temporary premises that inhabit it and interact freely creating a unique territory for that moment and encouraging the idea of ​​making a location. The installation is based on plywood and plywood sheets on the outside of the circumference, while the interior was lined with recycled glass, generating an infinite reflection. To optimize the use of the materials, a modular system was used, avoiding the generation of waste and guaranteeing the reuse of the same.
