LAS HORMIGAS DE AZCAPOTZALCO

Las hormigas de Azcapotzalco

An easy-to-build platform as an extension of the existing sidewalk; a path of lights linking the main street Avenida Ceylan to the new park; street painting recalling the spatial pattern in ant colonies, while signaling a slowdown for cars and trucks; “Mexican” bright colors. 

Small and fast interventions for the social appropriation of the street as new urban space for kids to play, parents to meet, and workers to rest.

A social regeneration of the industrial neighborhood in Azcapotzalco reinterpreting the concept of Community: each social group is imagined as a specific type of ant; each type of ant is part of the same colony; each ant colony is a mixed and interrelated organism.
