This project is conceived through the examination of contemporary Mexico City though the history of its landscape and occupation, from the lake dwelling community of the Aztecs to the urbanized metropolis resulting from Spanish occupation. The remnants of these flows are visible today in the current shifting unstable ground of Mexico City, especially marking the buildings of early Spanish construction that are dramatically tilted and sinking into the ground. This project exists in these areas that are a reminder of Mexico Cities colonial pasts allowing the existing architecture to sink and creating a new artificial ground plane to surround it. The result is a collection of complex spatial configurations that transform along with the environment and provide amenities and social programs for migrant communities within the Mexican Capital.
