The architectural strategy and scenery strategies consist of creating TWO interconnected LAKES, one for every 100 years of Independent and Modern history of Mexico, which articulate the varied architectural program (Auditorium, Sports center, Vivarium, Botanical garden, Orquidearium, Recre- ational Areas, Site Museum, Restaurants, Wetlands...) This diversity in the program, which is assumed to be representative of the biological, cultural and social wealth of Mexico, is related to the spirit of the new times, where the politics are cleaned up, becomes accessible to the citizen and is capable of coexisting in balance with the environment.
The whole park is conceived like A LIVING ENVIRONMENTAL MUSEUM, the visits to its infrastructure turn into part of the attraction and its daily operation will be the best educational model for the diffusion of a culture of the SUSTAINABILITY.
