México Paralelo

Mexico Paralelo is a data graphics device that demonstrates the consequences of urban development in Mexico City.

Mexico City is one of the largest cities in the world, with a metropolitan area of some 21.2 million people. Water scarcity is a critical issue, restricting future development and calling for a radical rethinking of the city’s infrastructure. The device rotates at one revolution per day, using real data and speculative algorithms to illustrate three variables and their impact on the city: traffic level, CO2 levels and ambient temperature.
