Colombia (a+u 618)

A+U Publishing, 2022


This issue of a+u magazine offers an inside look at the architecture, landscape, and cities of Colombia, a land of fabulous natural beauty that has used architecture as a key agent in rebuilding its cities and civil society following decades of strife. A photo essay by Camilo Echavarría shows how travels through the tropical region reveal a homogenous, abstract passage of time, where architecture is conditioned by various landscapes and geographic diversity. Medellín-based architect and guest editor Camilo Restrepo Ochoa leads this journey through Colombia, showing works by fourteen practices across three generations, and neighbourhoods that are reinvigorated through mobility and urban space.
