BOGOTA ART GALLERY
It is implemented on an existing abandoned structure. The project is located at 63th street, on the eastern hills of Bogota. A couple of buildings are articulated by a square and these contain a first level uses such as administration, cafeteria, shop and three higher levels intended for the exhibition of art works. Light and harmony are essential for the building's succes. Cocrete, wood and glass work together to provide a well-lighted environment for showcasing the work of artists.

The windows are oriented to the north and south where there is virtually no direct solar incidence. These also allow the entry of diffused light, framing the wooded landscape of the eastern hills of Bogotรก. From the outside the building looks dark, but from within the site is framed as an integral part of the project. The facade gives rhythm to rectangular buildings, generates amplitude inside and appear shadows that make an atractive volume. Congregation area has a square receipt and a view to the west of the city.

FLOOR PLAN 1
FLOOR PLAN 2
The house is a shelter that feeds the scenery and it is implanted discreetly about the mountain. Stairs organize space horizontally and vertically as well as being the first scene upon entering the building. There is a first level intended for social and service areas. Private areas are on the second level, there is a bridge that connects the master bedroom to the others. The structural walls give the impression of being an introvert home, but inside the windows frame the landscape and capture the sun controllably.
26th Media Library It is a metropolitan scale equipment and is located at the International Center of Bogota on 26th Street and Caracas Avenue. The project aims to renovate an area where land is expensive but is impaired. An architectural intervention tends to be successful when it affects the everyday lives of people , so the appropriation of space is pursued. The project will be transited two million people a day and it is a culture and employment trigger for a place where social problems currently as poverty and lack of education are presented .

THE BUILDING | Form, method and implantation
The buildings form results from turn a square into a rhombus in order
to support 3 large terraces on one side and a vacuum in the opposite side to generate counterbalance. The vacuum ventilates and illuminates the interior. As the building increases in height, the area of the floors decrease, so the hierarchy and appropriate behavior for earthquakes is provided. The terraces protected from solar incidence and accompany the sunâ€™s journey from east to west. They are oriented towards the humble neighborhoods that seek to recover socially and urbanely; they are included in the landscape. Also serve to articulate the project and connect with other buildings in the second level the different sides of the Caracas Avenue and 26th Street. The slope of the decks is conducive to capture water from rain and capture the sun with solar panels that store energy and supplying the building. A metal structure to the large volume of lightness is proposed; also, it contributes to change the uses over time depending on the needs of the population. This is complemented by glass facades with opacity to control the solar incidence. The 85 % of the land is intended to public space for the congregation, movement and transition of the inhabitants. A gifted wooded edge of a square is proposed to accommodate any type of activity and complement the present building.
Vacuum - Terraces
wo rhombus are implanted in the downtown of Bogota and connected through a square intended to services and circulation. This communicates to two free floorspace in each of the seven levels. The program is proposed as follows:

FUNCTIONAL FURNITURE | Shaping the habit
he architect must design spaces that contribute to the quality of life. Part of his responsibility is to understand human behavior and its relationship with the world to bring proposals that transcend time by its utility, quality and harmony. SHAPE is suitable for the habit because it does not obstruct the space that is part of it, promoting its efficient use, and exalting his main qualities: visual, light and space. The habit is enriched by the provision towards a beautiful horizon to peace and inspiration so that there is INTEGRATION. This furniture production takes into account little material, easy assembly, anthropometry and gravity. SPECIFICATIONS
At 3:45 pm customer finishes her business day and goes home. Time is not spent to sleep or watch television, her HABIT is use of natural light in the northeast corner of her apartment and an old TV cabinet for JEWELRY DESIGN.
Vertically on the wall works as a shelf. When removing the cabinet becomes a desk overlooking the eastern hills of Bogota.

TEMPORARY BUILDING | ice-cream shop
There are cases in which architecture should
be flexible and designed to occupy different places. A module that can grow depending on the need and the size of land on which it is proposed to be implanted. The design is developed to realize an ice cream shop on different properties of Bogota. It requires that the building can be transported easily, its construction takes little time and an attractive design.

PAIL CHILDREN HALL
OBJECTIVE | CONCEPT
Encourage reading in children by creating a dynamic reading and game space, which is achieved through the interplay of forms, the entry of light and material properties chosen.
MATERIAL AND RELATIONSHIP WITH THE OUTSIDE Plastic pails were chosen as the main material of the project. A material that allows you to filter the light diffusely between the spaces left by the pails.
A MODULE THAT IS REPEATED PavilionÂ´s design comes from the radial division of a circle into three equal parts. This allowed the generation of walls in different directions, which contributed to the spatiality of the pavilion. Another advantage of the module is available that generates structural stability to form a triangle. THE FLOOR PLAN DESIGN The location of the modules on the ground takes from by a grid that allowed all pails have the same angles and out easier implementation and construction.
SUBA MASTER PLAN Provide quality public space
The project is located in Suba (northwest of Bogota) where cycling
and public buses (72% of the population) are the most recurrent transportation, but bike paths and walking trails are deficient in terms of sizing and continuity thereof. So, it is proposed a boulevard that gives prominence to pedestrians, increased public space and create continuity in routes and accessibility to neighborhoods in the area. The percentage of public space goes from 0.9 acres to 6.1 acres, equipped with street furniture, parks, places of residence and two vehicular traffic lanes in each direction. The complement of this initiative is given to treat the footpath, open blocks and platforms where people are passing in different levels. SUBA HILLS JUAN AMARILLO WETLAND

CAMACHO MATIZ: RENOVATION Build on the built
Interventions in network road has forgotten about the buildings, even those like Camacho Matiz that have a particular historical value. The project consists to revitalize this important corner of Bogota and restore a building that is wasted.

FLOOR PLAN 1
AIR PROJECT VIEW
Before the intervention, there were some trade booths occupying public space and congested street. Public space is the intervention biggest goal . This consists to release the first floor and create a second level where different flows and activities are developed. The building Camacho Matiz is shown dense and turns his back on a major city street. Therefore intervention gives a public and transparent aspect to that part of the city. The first three levels are accessible to any city, as well as its cover. All are connected to the public space by means of a new facade containing the vertical circulation of the main building.
ORIGINAL FLOOR PLAN
INTERVINED FLOOR PLAN
The forces that receive the building were estimated by
Staad Pro (analysis software). This reveals that the structural system is more rigid than is required at present, so intervention only needs a structural wall to support the vertical circulation on the facade. The building has adequate compartments to earthquakes and made easily the intervention both inside and outside the building.

FENICIA HOUSING MODULE The project consists of a prefabricated universal module with spatial and structural fexibility that attaches to different users and family groups. Given its design conditions, the module allows the variation of its use over time. This module creates architectural conditions in 3 different scales - City, Environment and inhabitants, allowing to create different housing typologies - Bar, Tower, House over House, etc.
Its necessary to understand housing as a system that coexists with social, economical, sustainable principles, construction time, fexibility and transformation variables that must ensure the basic needs of the citizens.
The project is an example of
one of the different possibilities that the Housing Module system offers to intervene an specifc sector of a city. Architectural Intentions consist of design a Flexible housing project that allows the temporary relocation of a variety of family groups that are part of the Partial Plan of ”Fenicia”, creating a relationship between the different activities of the sector - University student’s life, stores facilities and the urban environment. The architectural design is composed with a set of activities - commercial activities, fexible housing, restaurants, and cultural spaces - that connect the community with the place and the environment.
ROOF FLOOR PLAN
The first floor public space becomes relevant because it connects the city with the project. It also articulates various uses such as trade, services and facilities. There's wooded areas, squares and parks to community life.

Based on the previous study
of Minuto de Dios neighborhood and its location relative to Bogota, the composition of public space is proposed to remove the limits and articulate various uses. The project is implemented in the current neighborhood square, opposite the Museum of Contemporary Art and the MD University. It consists of a library, church, housing, retail, offices and parking.

AERIAL VIEW OF THE PROJECT Location in Bogota
Architectural projects take shape where the boundary line disappears to become a point of transition and not a 47
delimiter. The division of the city, obvious and aggressive, has given a connotation of insecurity to the street, these tend to be empty where the car is main character, community life is reduced in parks and plazas, and social gathering is mainly given to the interior of the buildings.
GENERAL PROJECT IMAGE
Composition of public space
It is shown in the MD neighborhood where public space is poor, disjointed and basically used for the movement of people. So this project is a reinterpretation of the limit to acquire a spatial connotation in terms of integrating spaces of various kinds, as part of a whole in the city. The church and library will complement the Art Contemporary Museum; theatre and educational facilities in the area share public space and give back to the neighborhood community life outdoors.
