Agora Bogotá in Colombia by Bermúdez Arquitectos + estudio Herreros

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Article source: Bermúdez Arquitectos + estudio Herreros

ÁGORA-BOGOTÁ will not just be like any convention centre used by sporadic visitors who have little contact with the city, but aims to ascend to the category of a public building infused into all citizens’ imagination. Therefore, all efforts have been concentrated on meeting collective as well as specialized demands. First and foremost, it offers an image which represents the aspirations of a society in transformation and that resembles an environmental sensitivity and technological ambition which inscribes the building in today’s concerns. The specialized demands focus on practical aspects such as circulation systems, both public, delivery and personnel, easy and comprehensible; an invisible but hierarchical and interconnected distribution of all the internal services that embodies the logistics’ scheme of the building; and a concept of flexibility that accepts the programming of very diverse formats, from a concert to a trade fair, from a congress to a film festival of from a grand banquet to a chess championship.

Fundación Santa Fe de Bogotá Enlargement in Colombia by El Equipo de Mazzanti

Sunday, September 17th, 2017

Article source: El Equipo de Mazzanti

Urban connector

The comprehension of a metropolitan scale is fundamental at the moment of thinking in an integral architectonical answer. More than solving a need for the expansion of the hospital, the project should commit to solve more of what it is requested, taking advantage of the good location of the intervention area. The project is located in a place in the city where two of the main avenues: 9th and 7th avenue almost connect. Our proposal looks forward to be a diagonal connector and work as a catalyzer for new flows, activities and human relationships.

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.
