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.
The event is supported by the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at University of Toronto and the Latin American Studies Program, University of Toronto.
