The Fundamental Questions

The proposal and strategy carried out by this contest is to put into full and profound discussion and questioning all the concepts, tools, coding, and interfaces used to understand, define, think, and project the current city, understanding that its current composition and configuration has failed in its basic function of generating happiness and human health and dignity.

in this way each participating team, as part of the foundations and arguments of their proposals, must answer explicitly a handful of essential questions.

 First, by identifying its qualities, essential characteristics, and urban and social values that existed prior to the destruction of the city.



Secondly, taking advantage of this devastating situation to project a vision of a city that wants to incorporate all the positive and valuable elements of (post) modernity.



Lastly, the possibility of thinking about this future city, envisioning an eco-friendly, climate-conscious, innovative city poised to be a global leader.
