Colombia Transformed / Architecture = Politics, on view at the Center for Architecture from July 11 through October 26, traces 11 recently-built socially-conscious projects by six leading voices in contemporary Colombian architecture: Daniel Bonilla and Giancarlo Mazzanti from Bogotá, and Felipe Mesa, Juan Manuel Pelaez, Felipe Uribe, and Orlando Garcia from Medellin.
These visionary works reflect significant social shifts that are taking place in Latin America today.
They demonstrate ideas of social inclusion, as well as innovative architectural forms and spaces, which have been steadily transforming Colombian cities and the nation.
The projects are explored through photographs, slides, drawings, models, and film footage to celebrate how these buildings are appropriated by the public.
