Aquifer, Water Supply, Consumption and Waste serve as the four main intersection points between the metropolitan metabolism and the natural flows of water. The Water Cycle is an introduction to the four mini atlases that further explore the water related inputs and outputs for Mexico City.
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.
