Infonavit Mejorando La Unidad, Tlalpan
This project was part of a program of improvements to housing complexes built in the 1970s in Mexico City. The collective nature of this intervention required the participation of the residents of a housing complex in the Tlalpan area. During this study it was decided, together with the inhabitants, to use all of the budget assigned to the project for the improvement of the public spaces shared by several apartment blocks.
For the project’s implementation, the public recreational, sports and social space was restored; a corridor now functions as a catalyst for various activities and a multipurpose roofed space was built to house a sports pitch. Playgrounds for children and young people were added to the project, as well as a landscape intervention.
