Tlatelolco

Tlatelolco

The square in the center of the Tlatelolco-Nonoalco quarter in Mexico City is a veritable epicenter in the pages of Mexican history. Rather than focusing on the monuments and representational architecture of the Plaza, TLATELOLCO concentrates on the neighboring residential high-rises. Built in the 1960s under the supervision of the modernist Mario Pani, Unidad Habitacional Nonoalco-Tlatelolco, is the largest apartment complex in Mexico City. The fading of an urban architectural utopia is captured by Schreiber and cine-matographer Johannes Hammel in hundreds of material details including the peeling, weathering, and improvisations necessitated by the building’s decline. (Joachim Schätz)
