The tragedies of Mexico City’s Tlatelolco housing complex – a history of cities in 50 buildings, day 31

Cities | The Guardian:
"But the downfall of modernism at Tlatelolco may also represent the rise of a new trend in housing, with a uniquely Latin American twist. This change is at the centre of the argument made by architecture critic Justin McGuirk in his recent book Radical Cities. McGuirk sees the decline of Tlatelolco as coinciding with the beginning of a new movement he calls “activist architecture”.
McGuirk highlights programmes such as slum upgrading and the social urbanism of Medellín, Colombia, to be the future of cities in Latin America, as well as the rest of the world. “[Activist architects] have to play off the private against the public to get the most out of both. They have to insinuate themselves into politicians’ plans,” he writes. “Above all, they have to be extroverts.”"
