EXHIBIT - Mexico City: Recording the City // Urban Mobility Design Challenges

Access to the City is everyone's right. Unfortunately in reality this is not the case for everyone, be it Mexico City, or Seattle. The Seattle Design Festival exhibition entitled Recording the City presents documented conditions in Mexico City through the eyes of ten University of Washington architecture students. Through video recordings, sound recordings, written stories, drawings, and paintings, the exhibition intends to broaden people's perception of the City and how people inhabit and interact with it by probing viewers to ask questions about their own City. How do we see the City? How do we read it? How do we live with it, move through it, adapt to it? And how does the city adapt to our own behaviors? By asking these questions of ourselves, and through seeing rather than looking, we generate a greater respect and understanding of the diverse individuals and groups with whom we share the City.
