BARRIO SANTA FE
Mexico City is one of the most populated cities in the world, with approximately 9 million inhabitants. Unfortunately, this overpopulation has negative effects on citizens' living standards, such as excessive pollution due to the emission of toxic gases by cars, excessive and unplanned urban development and a lack of attention to generation and preservation of green areas. As a solution to reduce this negative effect and improve the city's lifestyle, lately different projects have been built along the city, one of the most recent being Barrio Santa Fe.
This project was developed in Santa Fe, one of the most important and populated commercial, social and cultural areas of the city, with the aim of transforming a little used and practically abandoned area into a fully functional urban park. Now users can enjoy some time outdoors and take advantage of the commercial, artistic and gastronomic offer that the complex offers.
In addition to having elements of sustainability, such as green roofs, this project mixes art, culture and design with urban and environmental awareness to transform the area into a safe and friendly place for the whole family.
Barrio Santa Fe has an urban park, a gastronomic corridor, a pedestrian walkway, an open forum, an exhibition center and parking. As part of the culinary proposals, it has a gastronomic 'tianguis', which is a space with small gourmet restaurants, with this the project will support the local economy.
Architecture is a fundamental part of the project, since it proposes a modern and linear design that achieves a comfortable and innovative space, where works of art such as a sculpture by Zaha Hadid and murals intervened by different artists such as Edgar Saner were included.
Barrio Santa Fe promises to become one of the most popular meeting and recreation centers in the area.
