The recuperation of public space : a closer look at Bogotá, Colombia

Abstract

In order to observe the transformation of Bogotá, we carried out interdisciplinary research that aimed to understand the complexity of the city’s development and its implications for urban phenomena at different scales. We focused on two main aspects: first, the large-scale (or global) factors that made the changes possible, and second, the impact of paradigmatic projects on particular parts of the city. Concerning the large-scale, we analyzed the most important sociopolitical issues behind the transformation process. Turning to the local, we observed the impact of urban interventions in three particular zones of the city that were the subject of important physical transformations.
« The Recuperation of Public Space: A Closer Look at Bogotá » est un projet de recherche Cresson sur la transformation des espaces publics de Bogotá. Ce projet a été lauréat de la Grants for Research in Architecture Awarded – Rafael Vinoly Architect – New-York, en 2009.
