Photographer's Note

The Plaza de las Tres Culturas ("Square of the Three Cultures") is the main square within the Tlatelolco neighbourhood of Mexico City. The name "Three Cultures" is in recognition of the three periods of Mexican history reflected by buildings in the plaza: pre-Columbian, Spanish colonial, and the independent "mestizo" nation. The plaza, designed by Mexican architect and urbanist Mario Pani, was completed in 1966.[1][2]

The square contains the remains of Aztec temples and is flanked by the Catholic church of Santiago de Tlatelolco[3] (built between 1604 and 1610 by fray Juan de Torquemada[4][5]) and by a massive housing complex built in 1964.
