The Cultural Corridor Chapultepec

Place: Mexico City, Mexico

Type/ Subject/ Tags: Urban Design, Public Space, Sustainable

Avenida Chapultepec is one of the most important and historic avenues in Mexico City. Once a calm Pre-Hispanic road that ran along the city’s aqueduct, Avenida Chapultepec is now high-speed avenue, “negligent to its context and historic richness.” Thus, FR-EE / Fernando Romero EnterprisE, FRENTE arquitectura and RVDG arquitectura + urbanismo have joined forces to propose a pedestrian-centric masterplan that aims to transform the congested avenue into an efficient, multimodal roadway that features an elevated promenade lined with commercial and cultural programs that are powered by renewable energy and connected by lush landscaping.
