suburbia mexicana: urban holes by Alejandro Cartagena

“I am looking for places that conserve a trace of the demolished architectural structure that in a sense speak of the political-economical situation of a country that is finding a way to inject its economy by turning their backs to growing centrally and promoting and subsidizing the mass construction of housing complexes in the out skirts of the metropolitan area. urban growth depends and causes deconstruction in inner city areas. different from other urban renewal and growth plans of more economically strong countries, like that of chinas’, where the government uses its power and plans to displace people out of their homes in central urban areas, developers here only seek to find the cheapest land in order to generate bigger profit. land in downtown is highly overpriced by market speculation, making investors look to un-urbanized land to create new developments that are lacking of all kinds of infrastructure” Alejandro Cartagena.
