The Architecture Phd. Pablo Antonio Chico Ponce de León from the Autonomous University of Yucatan, gave his advice about the need to restore Merida’s historic buildings.
MERIDA – The research professor at the Faculty of Architecture from the Autonomous University of Yucatan (UADY) believes that Merida should have a comprehensive rescue program for the Historical Center.
During an interview with the Diario de Yucatán, the doctor in Architecture pointed out that the lack of a clear public policy along with obsolete legislation are reasons that do not help to solve the architectural deterioration of the ancient buildings in Merida’s downtown.
He also says that in the neighborhoods we can see an example of the loss of urban morphology. The natives of these suburbs are leaving their homes and generating a flourishing real estate business. The old houses are being remodeled and sold to foreigners, for whom the center of Merida is a great attraction.
The expert indicates that at least these houses are rescued, which may not be of great historical value, but maintains their housing function, although they are made with modifications that falsify a little their essence.
Also it was remarked that the Merida’s Center has lost all his green that was formed with the big backyards of each house in that zone. In the past times there were enormous green spaces in the backyards that usually joins in the back of the houses, where trees predominated, recalls the Architecture Phd. Ponce de León.
Although in the past the houses had fences (instead of walls made of rocks), this union of wooded lots generated a mass of vegetation. Its loss results in greater heat and other problems.
