Medellin: Creative City for Life. UPB and Arquitectura en Estudio shortlisted for international urban design competition in Medellin.
Working collaboratively with Arquitectura en Estudio we were awarded third place for our joint competition entry to master plan the civic centre of Medellin, Columbia.
Once the world’s most dangerous city, now one of the world’s most innovative, Medellin is a socially and physically divided city with extreme contrasts in urban fabric, social mobility and wealth. Building upon the legacy of recent urban renewal projects, including a new metro system, cable car and escalators, UPB and AE’s proposals re-configured the civic centre by inserting a new integrated public realm network and sequence of public spaces that knit the fragmented and divergent city centre together.
