...whatever...the buildings we see here are probably no more than 10 years old. this city was not even a tenth of the size it is now a hundred years ago. all the modern construction should've been carefully planned. there is no excuse for this city's chaos.

Mexico city is an amorphous aglomeration...this "lack" of planning actually makes the city more vibrant.

I agree. Mexico city doesn't have to imitate other urban agglomerations with a very dense and rich city centre and a very spread out belt of endless suburbs wit very little architectonic value (like USA, Australia, Canada or some South American cities). Mexico City has at least 3 financial districts (Reforma, Polanco and Santa Fe) with their own medium size skylines u/c increasing in density as the country develops itself. These skylines are connected by corridors of big avenues with threes, monuments, parks, statues and fountains as well as other districts with low skyline density and historical buildings that give the impression of having many different cities as part of a huge mega city. I think this is a very special urban model and it might seem chaotic (specially during the 80's) but little by little is taking shape and I foresee that Mexico City in 2025 will be a more harmonic, neat and very interesting place to visit offering to the tourists a big variety of things to see and to go, eclectic architecture and a rich past. Mexico city with its spread out and divided skylines might not look very spectacular from the air (for lacking of a huge cluster of high rise buildings) but it really stands out from the ground where the tourists like everybody else spend 99,9% of their time.

Mexico city's layout is closer to the one of the big and old european cities but since the city and the country itself is a developing region and not yet a developed one, everything gives the impression of a chaos that somehow works and will be working smoothly and nicely in the not so distant future. In the meantime is a promising work in progress. Keep going Mexico City!

Cheers,

Nope, that is supposed to be a new museum as a part of a city complex sponsored by mexican tycoon Carlos Slim. I think it is called " museo Soumaya " or something like that and will be part of the project known as "Carso City", that´s what I read.

Well I posted it without checking it out and just with the info I remembered from previous posts. But I am almost 99,9% sure that the info is correct, however I wrote " I Think " just in case I'm on that 00,1%
