Lab & Project

The Oasis Iztapalapa project started with a vision: to turn a public Health Science faculty on the periphery of Mexico City into a Healthy City Creative Center  —while its youth sets out to create and promote a wellbeing urbanism in its neighborhood. 

In order to engage young health science students with this vision, we created a multidisciplinary Lab in collaboration with the National Autonomous University of Mexico —and we invited scientists, artists, economists and public managers from all around Mexico City to join us.















Oasis Iztapalapa
The project


On a neighborhood affected by heavy social deprivation conditions on the eastern periphery of Mexico City, Oasis Iztapalapa was the collaborative result between local community agents: an urban intervention that promotes preventive healthcare, cultural activities and a sustainable economy.
