Tenōchtitlan was a city for the chosen people protected by the god Huitzilopochtli. It’s rise and fall was a result of its social class infrastructures, trade networks, military conquests, land cultivations, and sacrificial displays to the gods.
If the end of the world marks a new beginning, the 11 maps interrelate the rise and fall of the Aztecs civilization to the soil, the wells and the contemporary metropolis, going beyond Mexico City. The work, starting from the primordial landscape of the Valley of Mexico, addresses the history, explores the current situation, and reflects on the possible futures of Mexico City and the surrounding area.
