To create social housing with a high living standard and a unique identity by incorporating public services sustainable practices and urban space.

Strengths: Occupying only 50% of their lots, the homes line pedestrian streets and employ simple energy reduction practices such as solar heaters and rainwater collection. All vegetation is local and irrigated with rainwater harvested and filtered through a system of permeable pavements. Commercial and green areas are always less than 100m from any given home.The wide range of home costs and sizes are mixed throughout, generating a socioeconomic mix.

Difficulties: Government bureaucracy was the primary obsticle to the progress of the project.

Extra information: Tlacolula’s 1000 houses are designed as an ecosystem that follows a set of musts and considers the distance from the city by integrating transportation hubs, commercial, service, and green areas, leading to a site-specific, sustainable, balanced, and self-sufficient eco-social system.
