Project Background

La Campana is a dynamic, informal community on a hillside just south of the city center of Monterrey, Mexico.

Using participatory action research, our graduate class is working with La Campana neighbors to envision and plan various projects in their neighborhood, according to their priorities. They’re currently transforming a trashed lot into a pocket park.

Through a cross-border partnership made possible with a ConTex grant, our class in the University of Texas Community and Regional Planning department is working with La Campana’s nonprofit Barrio Esperanza and the Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León’s architecture department on this effort.
