Colombia: Architecture in Transformation

There are few countries that have witnessed such a radical architectural and urban transformation in the 21st century as Colombia. Since 2003, the cities of Bogota and Medellin have gone through significant transformation
with some of the most innovative architecture and catalytic urbanism in the world. This event will host three of Colombia's emerging architectural talents who are part of the new wave of designers. They will show recent
work including the Aquatic Centre for the South American Games, the Orchid House, and innovative work in socially and politically challenging contexts. Short presentations will be followed by a discussion on Colombian
Architecture in the South American context.
