Atepehuacan Park

Best Project of Public Space

About the project
Atepehuacan means «Where the water emanates». The park is located in one square in the north of Mexico City in the town of San Bartolo Atepehuacan. It’s currently in disrepair and has few functions for residents and citizens who visit the area, that’s why this project is proposed, seeking the recovery of green areas to generate recreational activities, where each space is inspired by the “Fractal” universal form and cyclical spaces designed to personal growth and collective development are regenerated, like an amphitheater, playgrounds and urban orchards. The project emerges as a point of Urban Acupuncture and idiosyncrasy where sociopolitical improvements are conceived in the zone through sustainable activities where the same visitors can plant and build their own public space.
