GARDEN CITY MEGA CITY: Ecosistemas Urbanos de WOHA, which opened at the Museum of the City of Mexico, is the firm’s first exhibition in Latin America.
The multimedia exhibit presents over two decades of WOHA’s work in sixteen intricate architectural models, an immersive video installation, drawings and large-scale photography by Patrick Bingham-Hall as well as interviews with residents and stakeholders.
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.
A dialogue sharing their typologies as ideas for architects, designers, and engineers, as well as developers and investors — all those concerned with the future of the Latin American city. Source and Photo, Courtesy of WOHA.
