We would like to share with you one project of the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy and the NYU Stern Urbanization Project. This project is based on a study carried out in order to learn about the growth of the biggest cities in the world. This work has been captured in the Atlas of Urban Expansion which gathers 120 cities.

The idea of this project is to anticipate the new growth of cities and to work as a simulation tool that could help to plan better cities in the future and to avoid a population collapse, which nowadays seems to be imminent.

By clicking on the image, you will be able to see a video which shows the growth of Mexico City from early XIX century to the year 2000.

Best regards from BUO Arquitectura!
