Río Ciudad

Space Production, Ecology and Culture

Roberto Pasini (Editor), Peter Rowe (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

It has often been said that we make our cities and are made by them in turn. Likewise there is usually a unique reciprocity between cities and the rivers that flow through them. For instance, among the many precedents for this can be found the Medellin River on the city of the same name in Colombia, the Trinity River in Dallas USA, the Seine in Paris, the Tiber in Rome and the Manzanares in Madrid. Many have received considerable attention in recent years. The Santa Catarina River and Monterrey, Mexico is no exception. Today it is regarded largely as a flood control channel and the subject of disastrous flood events. This need not be the case, as this documentation of a studio design exercise at UDEM makes clear. Here the river corridor is redesigned to act as a substantial armature for urban redevelopment and heightened civic and recreational identity in the City of Monterrey.
