Ciudad Prototipo: Mexico City Workshop

September 1- 5, 2015


  1. Our future is undeniably urban. More than half of humanity is currently living in cities; by 2050, that number will rise to include 70% of the world’s population. That’s why, now more than ever, it’s time for all of us to collectively, creatively pursue the question: What are cities for?

    For one week, from September 1-5, 2015, Mexico City was both the stage and the prototyping field for a collaborative effort between Laboratorio para la Ciudad and the MIT Media Lab. Two innovative labs +3,500 kilometers apart working together with the objectives of re-thinking what cities are for and how we can improve them and, exploring new ways of designing innovations for a megalopolis like Mexico City.
