The exhibition is based on WOHA’s recent publication, GARDEN CITY MEGA CITY: Rethinking Cities for the Age of Global Warming, produced in collaboration with writer and photographer Patrick Bingham-Hall.

It introduces WOHA’s concepts and strategies on sustainable architecture to Mexico City — the largest metropolitan agglomeration in the Americas — as a novel way to look at holistic design at different scales.

The practice sees similarities in climate and the expanding megacities between its “home base” in Southeast Asia and Latin America, and is starting a dialogue with this exhibition on the applicability of their architectural strategies to the region.
