Pozos

Guanajuato, Mexico
POZOS

Mineral de Pozos was one of the most powerful towns in colonial times due to its mines rich in silver and gold. During the Mexican Revolution the mines were flooded and the town was slowly abandoned and left in ruins until just a few years ago. The town was declared a "magic town" in 2013 by the Secretary of Tourism of Mexico because of its cultural importance and legacy.

Pozos is a project located around the town in a 1,100 hectares site that aims to create a continuation and a predictable expansion of the town in a series of neighborhoods. The neighborhoods are inspired not only on the human scale, mixed use pedestrian friendly streets and rural to urban transitions of the colonial towns but also in its topography, orography and desert climate environment.

Furthermore, the topography creates a natural amphitheater that the neighborhoods took advantage, creating magnificent views over a 55 hectares Park of Ruins which contains the most espectacular ruins of Haciendas and the old town. Pedestrian streets and plazas will concentrate most of the community activities and exchange.

First phase is under construction since 2015. Social projects such as an Agroecological farm, Regional High School and Arts & Crafts School are already in function.
