Transformation of Medellin, education and culture have been the main platform for true social changes, where physical infrastructures are essential in the inclusion of quality policies in areas where state hasn’t been before and low levels of human development are common. These spaces are operated from Educational Ministry and Citizen Culture, seeking mainly to improve the education quality to reduce dropout and repetition rates in early grades in elementary school. This project it’s about how to contribute to citizen encounter, integrating these infrastructures to the city, to its inhabitants and the recovery of public space.

Given the dramatic landscape canyon of Rio Bogota and as a way to ensure the fluidity and continuity within the same housing, subtly challenge was implanted in the environment, appropriating the space of the barrel; for that a warp of order lines that contrast sharply with the sinuous and organic geometry of the landscape, seeking to create a fusion between the natural and the constructed between solid and liquid, closed open, inside out, filled with empty, transparent opaque is created; so that these attributes were the ingredients that allow and give the tone for the organization and materiality of the house.

The main goal of the project is to provide the community of Marinilla with a space where their cultural identities can be expressed, recognized and most importantly can be promoted and preserved. This is a building conceived as an open space, where relevant traits of the paisa culture like gardening, planting, playing guitar, drinking coffee or simply rest on a hammock take place around classrooms that are constantly exposed to the town´s weather and natural environment.

VIMOB was born from the notion of creating a shelter in an area of difficult access; a place where building a traditional construction would be limited by transport of materials and labor. It is a modular housing solution, based on the concept of prefabrication and assembly, capable of holding the essential space of a traditional construction in a practical, flexible, attractive and modern prototype. It is structured from carefully studied modules, articulated with harmony and sobriety in a cozy atmosphere, allowing the enjoyment of the environment and providing an image of high standing.

Pueblo Bello is a town of Antioquia Uraba, inhabited by about 2000 people, which from 1990 and for nearly twenty years suffered the worst effects of paramilitary and guerrilla violence. Enforced disappearances, massacres, the burning of buildings and people, and population displacement were common. In this dark picture is highlighted the disappearance of “the 43″, the largest forced disappearance of the history of Colombia and the reason why the nation was sanctioned by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.

Vigia del Fuerte is a municipality in Antioquia on the border with the department of Choco, and separated from Bojaya by the Atrato river. It is located in the southernmost part of the subregion of Urabá in Antioquia Middle Atrato area, which corresponds to the tropical rainforest. It is a town with one of the lowest levels of human and social development in the area, with strong conditions in terms of weather, accessibility, and interconnection, within a region that has been hit in the past by public order problems. Despite this, the municipality has lush vegetation and is renowned for its biodiversity and variety of ecosystems, whose potential for the development of the region is beginning to be tapped. For this reason, the Antioquia government decided to make a major investment in the area to strengthen it, an intervention that due to the very conditions of the site is required to disassemble predisposed schemes and operate in a unique way especially considering the region, which is not replicable in any other place of the national territory.
