In Bogotá, low-income neighbourhoods lack good-quality public spaces – depriving residents of an important aspect of civic life. Combining landscape design and architecture, the designer has devised a scheme in which a large park connects urban areas of the city – creating a pleasant flow between urban, suburban, natural and wetland spaces. The scheme provides valuable public spaces for the city’s most deprived residents while improving air quality, biodiversity and the general aesthetic for all.
Born in Colombia. I have a bachelor degree in Architecture, from Universidad de los Andes, in Bogotá, Colombia. Recently participated in an architecture exchange program with the University of Florence, living in Italy for 6 months. I had the opportunity to take part in a landscape workshop with Penn University, in Philadelphia and Bogotá during the second semester of 2017. I currently work at an architecture and engineering studio focused on sustainability for urban developments and my interests are urban design, city planning and landscaping.moreInstagram
