Summary:A book that not only describes the urban issues of Mexico City but also details a visionary project which offers concrete solutions to its acute problems. The rescue of the city begins with the dry Texcoco lake bed, just ten kilometers from the historic downtown. The proposal involves the rehydration of this ancient lake, with an integral vision of infrastructure, ecology, and urban development for the entire region. The construction of a system of lakes fed by 5% of the water wasted by the city would have a positive effect on atmospheric conditions. Connected by means of urban infrastructure and surrounded by 80 kilometers of shoreline, it would provide the area necessary for future urban growth in the east of the city, as well as the services and parks the zone requires. Mxico, ciudad futura has been created out of a sustainable territorial vision, reconciling the city to its geography and history.
