2016 - Mexico City - UNAM 4

On the campus of UNAM, Coyoacan Borough, Mexico City

 

UNAM has a number of buildings in its Coyoacan campus festooned with murals, many made with coloured ceramic tiles.

 

So a quick trip to visit the ones not under restoration.

 

In 1943 initial decisions were made to move the university from the various buildings it occupied in the city center to a new and consolidated university campus;

 

The new Ciudad Universitaria would be in Coyoacan to the south of the city. The first stone laid was for the faculty of Sciences, the first building of Ciudad Universitaria.

 

President Miguel Alemán Valdés participated in the ceremony on 20 November 1952. The University Olympic Stadium was inaugurated on the same day.
