GARZA USABIAGA, Daniel. The Towers of Ciudad Satélite: Ruins of a Proyect That Was Never Concluded. An. Inst. Investig. Estét [online]. 2009, vol.31, n.94, pp.127-152. ISSN 0185-1276.

This article centers on a review of the original town-planning project for Ciudad Satélite proposed by the architect Mario Pani in 1957. The research was aimed at bringing to light the planning model for the new town on the periphery of Mexico City, the buildings and the street furniture with which it would have to be provided, as well as the individual and community profile of those who, according to Pani's ideas, would be expected to live there. The work sets out to weigh up the present state of this development in relation to its original conception and first visualization; it then goes on to discuss the project of the Towers, which were executed in collaboration by Luis Barragán and Mathias Goeritz, as the "trade-mark" of the project located in Naucalpan, in the Estado de México. This sculptural complex is analyzed critically bearing in mind the program of emotional architecture which both architects saw as identifying their works.
