RAMIREZ SAIZ, Juan Manuel  y  SAFA BARRAZA, Patricia. Realities and Challenges for Metropolitan Areas: Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey. Desacatos [online]. 2011, n.36, pp.131-148. ISSN 2448-5144.

This article offers an overview of the urban conditions in the country's three leading metropolitan areas at the end of the last century and the beginning of the present one. On the one hand, we consider the changes that have been recorded and the observable trends that structure the internal space of these metropolitan areas. The readjustment they are undergoing is a function of the logic by which these elements operate and the effects it produces on the three cities. Thus, attention is paid to the impact that the internal dynamics of each one of them has separately on the metropolitan area. This impact cuts two ways: it deactivates older ways of operating, and proposes new ones. But aside from these sector-based effects, there are problems or trends that affect the cities and their inhabitants simultaneously. In this case, we analyze the main issues that cut across the metropolitan space in its entirety. In both cases, the basic information comes from recent literature.

Palabras llave : metropolitan area; urban structure; cross-sectional problems and challenges of metropolitan space.
