22 May to 21 November 2021 | 17th International Architecture Exhibition Venice: How will we live together? | Chair of Architecture and Urban Design, Prof. Klumpner and others.
Imagining architecture and urbanization from the people’s perspective in support of Colombia’s peace-process cities. As an initiative of architects working in Colombia with local governments, universities, and civil society, we believe we need to pay greater attention and care to help to solve some of the most pressing environmental but especially the social problems: lack of education, health, work, housing in cities like Bogota, Medellin, Barranquilla and Cartagena, the latter of which boasts the most uneven distribution of wealth in Colombia.
