Kiosks of San Lucas neighborhood


In cooperation with Ana Álvarez and neighbors of San Lucas, Ciudad de México.
2017

Context

Public spaces are no longer habited, and street only serves as a way to go from a private space to another. This is the present tendency at Ciudad de México, a situation that implies an urban decay, not only of these public spaces, but of its residents’ quality of life.

Proposal

Transform these security and community participation modules of San Lucas into kiosks for the neighborhood with “walking books”. These walking books were people from the neighborhood and from some other districts of town, ready to share stories and knowledge, and open to be consulted by other neighbors and citizens.

The scope of my work is very broad because it is in permanent dialogue with the changing social rhythms, time perceptions and political landscapes.
