Colombia: Transformed / Architecture=Politics 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 Medellín. 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.

About the curators:

Trained as an architect at Cooper Union, he is the author of books: Felix Novikov, Green House, Soviet Modernism: 1955-1985, and Harry Seidler (Rizzoli, 2014). His Harry Seidler exhibition is now traveling in North America and will be going to Australia and Europe in 2014-15.
