Given the decision of the Government of Mexico City to build on Chapultepec Avenue the Chapultepec Cultural Corridor project, I decided to create a Memorial to experience if it could be possible to prevent tragedies that have not yet occurred.
To do this, I designed and manufactured a 120 meter-long modular structure based on bambo which echoed the forgotten aqueduct of Chapultepec and that could be built in under four hours.
To execute it, I invited citizens through social media to support its participatory construction. The entire structure amplified for a week the voices and messages that neighbors and organizations extended to the local government, asking for a transparent referendum to determine the destination of the project, and communicating other requirements such as the need for better public transport and spaces for leisure and culture . Four days after the construction of the Memorial to Our City, the Chapultepec Cultural Corridor project was canceled and today Chapultepec Avenue has been refurbished.
