While the cities of Europe were dark mazes of narrow and irregular streets in the early 16th century, Tenochtitlan was already a well-structured and organized metropolis. After the Iberians established their empire in the Americas, they wanted the cities of New Spain to be embodiments of Renaissance ideals, which they accomplished in part through the application of the Vitruvian gridiron. This presentation tracks the development of the grid system in Mexico City up until the 18th century.
