Final project — Architecture — Metabolic architectureProyecto final — Arquitectura — UAM (Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana)This project consists in the planning of a future city and in this context propose a building that helps to solve the future function of cities.Ciudad metabólica — Metabolic city — 2030Multiplex — Work, transport, mall & researchAt the year 2014 our cities take up 2% percent of earth's surface but consume 89% of resources and produce 91% of pollution. This data set out many questions for architects and urban designers, why this unbalance between our cities and nature? what are we doing wrong in our cities? Is architecture really working? Is architecture really human?Is evident that we have to change how architecture and our cities function.The city locates on Puebla Mexico, where Atoyac river one of the most polluted rivers in the country flows toward pacific ocean affecting entire ecosystems and many people, simultaneously transporting near to 50 heavy metal components in the water through the rivers path, this pollution is caused by the industry near to Puebla city.The city take part into a regional plan to recover Atoyac river, taking the final part on its recovery and demonstrating that architecture can work in harmony with nature.how?Future architecture should be metabolic, this means that architecture could recreate some nature metabolic processes to be more efficient and not be predator architecture anymore.The multiplex is integrated by these buildings: Metabolic tower: Corporation and agriculture building (Work)Central station (transport)Mall (economic activities)Agriculture institute (research center)--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------For more information:
