Mexico City, one of the most populous and dense conurbations in the world, faces some of our most daunting contemporary architectural challenges. This unique, incisive volume invites readers on a journey through the everyday life of the city. Not only are its citizens called upon to demonstrate both spontaneity and creativity in order to deal with the city's innumerable problems in this time of growth and globalization, but architects and town planners must also respond, with innovative and unusual strategies, to the challenges of the hyperconcentrated city. Citámbulos--which enumerates urban phenomena that are not characteristic of Mexico City alone, while at the same time raising questions about the future of megacities all over the world--compiles the expertise of artists, urban planners and architects, including Alberto Millán, Carlos Ranc, Rodrigo Remolina and Gabriela Sánchez.
