LafargeHolcim Foundation Prize Winning Projects in Sustainable Construction

Project Summary

Urban transit corridor and river remediation master plan

Taking Mexico City as a tangible study case, Regenerating La Piedad River reflects on the growth of mega cities and societies’ reliance on individual motorized traffic systems, leading to the environmental degradation of ecosystems worldwide.

What is intended is the regeneration of living systems to perpetuate self-renewing patterns instead of their contamination and rapid degradation – proposing a fundamental change in societies’ relationship with the environment.
