With more than 24 million people, mexico city has become one of the most populated cities in the world. The urban expansion has brought many problems to its population like pollution, lack of water, insecurity and many more.
One solution is to stop the horizontal urban expansion, condense the city and uprade the public transportation, so people can move without using a car.
Paseo de la Reforma avenue is becoming the next buisness district which is closer to many tourist areas and housing. A great opportunity to form what is called a small city, where people can live and go to work without spending hours in traffic.
The project is located in Paseo de la Reforma 423. A skyscraper of 274 meters high containg a mixed use of offices, hotel and commerce.
Building a skyscraper of this high requires a great challenged because Mexico City is located in a Lake zones where the ground is really soft and an Earthquake area.
The tecnology we have today has make possible many challenges that seem impossible in the past. We as students have to learn and take advantage of these tecnologies in order to solve the many problems of the future.
