Bogotá Centro in Colombia by CAZA Architects

Wednesday, May 17th, 2017

Article source: CAZA Architects

The largest single urban intervention to date in Bogotá, this master plan has the potential to reimagine the way Bogotanos relate to their city. The 72-hectare site revisits the idea of compactness and diversity in the city through the creation of districts within a network of intermediate public parks, each with its own family of mixed-used buildings that in turn define shared private open spaces. Informed by typological research into existing forms of collective housing in Colombia and an analysis of the street grids of the surrounding neighborhoods, the master plan proposes a framework for action. The design acknowledges the reality of Bogotá as a shifting urban territory and proposes a finely articulated spatial strategy of built and unbuilt zones that enables growth and development.

House of the Acacia in Colombia by David Macias – Arquitectura & Urbanismo

Sunday, April 23rd, 2017

Article source: David Macias – Arquitectura & Urbanismo 

Facing the majesty of an old native tree, as a pre-existence on the land to be built, this was the perfect excuse to generate the design of the house. In the middle of the lot and with the natural traces of the passage of time, this natural element was the great actor in the middle of a difficult but important decision, to rescue it and recover its splendor. Decision that led to the architectural design to revolve around it, taking advantage of its virtue as a generator of shadow, helping the home to provide self-regulation and climatic comfort on warm days. The shade, an important aspect for a recreational house in warm weather, was generated by eaves in front, looking for the perfect orientation to minimize the direct impacts of the sun. However, the shadows generated by the same architectural design through its eaves were sufficient for the control of the private areas, reason why and thinking in the best implantation for the house it was decided to isolate the architectural volume towards one of the boundaries, Respecting in a natural way the land adjacent to the tree keeping its roots intact. This decision allowed to generate a center of activity where the main actor becomes the tree and the shadow that it projects, allowing to design a large perimeter terrace, outdoor spaces and recreation that take life under the old native tree.

Two requirements were sufficient for the approach and the genesis of this project. The first activities under typical rural environment equestrian uses were present as indissoluble features in the design concept; and the second project a rural housing under a contemporary reading embodied in its architecture. Thus the fundamental challenge of the project was to ensure that both the use and image were in constant symbiosis. For this and before generating a design scheme, architects initiate an investigation of the cultural aspects from the area of ​​habitat that have been established in rural dwellings of the place.

Can a home with endless view the landscape interweave both spaces that create privacy and features an open house?

Thus the challenge of the project encourages research about the different types of traditional architecture of the garden and recreation. For this, the architects used the analog conceptualization of Urdimbre as generating element of the project to develop a design that understand their environment in terms of implementation, physical morphology of the land and architectural program.

Production by means of regeneration

The minery is a global event that has constantly wasted the planet for a long time, now this is one of the most serious environmental issues in addition to this the remarkable overcrowding in cities which leads to higher energy costs and higher food consumption, is why the “GEA” initiative arises which aims to restore life to places inert victims of mining and exploitation and in turn make them fertile land for the production and the resurgence of habitat and the environment.

Due to the migration to the cities, human occupation of the territory is less, then large areas for food production, environmental remediation and biodiversity will be released.

Los Nogales School’s chapel in Bogotá, Colombia by Taller Arquitectura De Bogota

Wednesday, September 28th, 2016

Article source: Taller Arquitectura De Bogota

Los Nogales School’s Chapel, is conceived based on human life’s dualities. A pure and elemental prism represents the pureness, the essential and the harmony. The various volumes and cracks that this prism suffers represent the spiritual sense in human lives, therefore harmony’s alterations. The prism order is juxtaposed with these alterations that generate light cracks on the elevations, allusion to hope and opportunity in a life of darkness. The dimness take place, as a place for quietness and prayer; the search for the interior self. Dualism also happens when the chapel opens itself to gather a major number of assistants; the lineal traditional axis of the interior becomes the transverse one, altar changes to chorus, and Christian traditional symbolism suffer a metamorphosis just by opening two huge doors facing a wide public space. This changes the chapel dramatically, from one that can gather 100 assistants to another capable for almost 2000, distorting the scale of the building itself, and making invisible the edge between interior and exterior. In fact the site’s composition is the result of a detailed study, composed by the chapel’s prism and the loose belfry element, which works as a symbolic landmark. The ochre concrete and the natural wood reflect brightness and nobility, mixed with texture and grain, surround by the tranquility of the subtle water pond and the trees.
