(Valle de México) is consolidated over an old hydrographic basin, profoundly dissected, that was drained south (into the old Amacuzac River), and that got blocked by the Chichinautzin mountain chain around 500000 years ago. The lacustrine sediments of the site are considered highly comprehensible and generate too many problems in the cementation for any construction wished to be done in Mexico City (Díaz Rodríguez, 1998) … It is important to make a study of its sinking, the cracking and the displacements or lateral deformations that Mexico City's soil is suffering considering that these is provoking problems, not only economical thanks to the damages caused directly over the urban infrastructure, but also those that come alongside with social and legal problems due to the risk implied in living in zones where these phenomenons are latent and are also capable of provoking floods where human losses have been registered.”

Mexico City is sinking inside of its many linings of histories and (historical) violences. It is produced by the accumulation of diverse weights and psychosocial, political or economical forces that started boiling long ago in this enormous city (which foundation dates back to 1325) and it is a crushing force and manifestation of something mundane and real: literally its buildings, plazas and streets are being sucked by its underground forces, swallowed by its own swampy land.

“ One of the principal factors that is generating cracks on the lacustrian sediments is the mechanical unbalance caused by the alteration of the physical properties of the system in short terms. Natural phenomenons act as mechanisms that generate fractures, like the seismic activities and the drownings caused by torrential rains; nevertheless, the most important mechanisms are the processes provoked by human activity.”
