Note: 

suburbia mexicana is a five part project that revolves around the representation of the current mexican suburban sprawl with a focus on the metropolitan area of monterrey (mam). this first part of the project sheds light on the implemented neo-liberal economic strategies made by the mexican government since 2001 that have pushed urban growth out of the regulation of the metropolitan urban plan. this has created contradicting policies that have let construction firms build more than 300,000 new houses around the 9 cities of the mam.
